PROVO, Utah, Dec. 8, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Utah woman Elizabeth Salgado’s mysterious disappearance caught the attention of Fox Network’s Crime Watch and was featured on their Dec. 3 episode.
Salgado’s disappearance on April 16, nearly eight months ago, has baffled investigators and left friends and family at a loss. Salgado literally vanished without a trace and despite countless hours of ground searches and thousands of leads, there are still no answers.
The family, who feels Salgado has been taken against her will, made videos with the help of El Mero, a bilingual news source, begging her 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.
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.
Donations totaling $50,000 have poured in over the last several months as a reward for information that leads investigators to finding Salgado.
Several surrounding law enforcement agencies as well as the FBI, Immigration, Homeland Security and the Attorney General’s Office have been involved in the search for the missing Provo woman.
Still, there has been no sign of Salgado.
Detectives say Salgado disappeared around 2 p.m. as she walked home from Nomen Global Language School in Provo. She is described as 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 5 inches tall, 120 to 130 lbs., with long black hair and brown eyes.
She was last seen wearing a denim jacket, blue jeans with black or brown knee high boots. She was reportedly carrying a denim handbag with red straps.
Anyone with any information regarding the disappearance of Elizabeth Salgado is asked to contact the Provo Police Department at 801-852-6210.
