Family of women who disappeared travelling from US to Mexico left 'desperate'

March 13, 2023

Maritza Trinidad Perez Rios, 47, Marina Perez Rios, 48, and their friend, Dora Alicia Cervantes Saenz, 53, went missing while on their way to a flea market. US Customs and Border Protection say the three women crossed into Mexico from Peñitas, a small border city in Texas, on February 24. Now Ludy Arredondo, the cousin of the Perez sisters, has spoken out about the ordeal. The husband of one of the missing women had spoken to her by phone while she was travelling in Mexico, the police chief said, but grew concerned when he couldn’t reach her afterwards. Bermea said the women were travelling in a green mid-1990s Chevy Silverado to a flea market in the city of Montemorelos, in Nuevo Leon state.
