PROVO, Utah, April 15, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — It’s been a year since Elizabeth Salgado was last seen, and her disappearance has baffled investigators and left her friends and family at a loss.

Salgado, who was last seen on April 16, 2015, literally vanished without a trace. Despite hours of ground searches and thousands of leads, there are still no answers.

Family members, who feel Salgado was taken against her will, have made videos with the help of “El Mero,” a bilingual news source, begging possible captors to let her go.

This past summer, the family took a trip to California to meet with Facebook in a combined effort to spread the word internationally and to spread the video message they created.

Provo police detectives have spent thousands of hours following up on leads, searching Salgado’s last known route and being involved in several searches of the Provo area with hundreds of volunteers and trained Community Emergency Response Teams.

Several area law enforcement agencies, as well as the FBI, Immigration, Homeland Security and the Attorney General’s Office also have been involved in the search for the missing Provo woman.

“It has been a very stressful situation and very frustrating because there are no leads that can help us find her,” Elizabeth Salgado’s uncle, Rosemberg Salgado said. “It’s been a great blessing the police are still working on this case and the FBI. We have the hope and the faith that the Lord will give the right guidance to find her.”

Donations totaling $50,000 have poured in over the last year as a reward for information that leads investigators to the missing woman.

Detectives say Salgado disappeared around 1:30 p.m. as she walked from the Nomen Global Language School in Provo to her home at the Branbury Apartment Complex, at 449 W. 1720 North. She is described as about 5-feet-4-inches tall, 120 to 130 pounds, with long black hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a denim jacket, blue jeans, and black or brown knee-high boots. She reportedly was carrying a denim handbag with red straps.

“It has been a tireless search and we ask the community to help us with any leads to find my niece,” Rosemberg Salgado said. “We want to encourage whoever knows something to come forward and tell the Provo Police Department what they know, and to put themselves in our place and tell the authorities what they know.”

Anyone with any information regarding the disappearance of Elizabeth Salgado is asked to contact the Provo Police Department at 801-852-6210.
