Relatives of a Cuban migrant who left Chile to reach the United States reported him missing, so they asked for help from the Antillean community abroad to find him.
The migrant has been identified as Néstor Domenico Cruz, who was contacted by his family on October 12, while trying to cross the border between Panama and Costa Rica.
The complaint was made by Eduardo Barata Cruz, who claimed to be the brother of the missing migrant. According to him, his brother was searched by some relatives in Costa Rica, without success.
“I want all the press, influencers, and social media users to please help us in our search,” he said on social networks.
According to Barata Cruz, their small family in Costa Rica dedicated themselves to searching for their brother in shelters and detention centers, but they could not find him, causing concern to grow.
As he explained, although Domenico Cruz’s trip started in 2019, it was slow due to the various challenges that the Cubans encountered abroad, which is why it was continued until 2023.
Now, the entire family is desperate to find him and hopes that spreading the word about his case will help them do so.
“I want to let you know so that if someone sees this or knows something, they can let us know. Thank you very much,” concluded Barata Cruz.
The lack of food and medicine that has existed in Cuba for many years has forced many people to try their luck abroad, something that is not always good. Stories of Cuban migrants who have gone missing on their way to the United States are frequently reported by concerned relatives.
In mid-September, the case of David Diosdali Cepeda, an Antillean who disappeared shortly after, was reported. by train is widely used by Mexican migrants to reach the north of the country.
Journalist Javier Díaz, from Univisionshared the case, pointing out that the man left the Dominican Republic with the goal of reaching the United States, and that, until that point, he maintained constant contact with his family.
Relatives indicated that he was traveling with other citizens from the Island whom he met along the way and that they had not seen them for more than a month.
