Details of Disappearance

Jose was last seen in Sells, Arizona on June 3, 2007. He was crossing the Mexican border on foot with a small group of other migrants. They began their trip on June 1.

On June 3, the group scattered after they heard ATVs and a helicopter approached and hovered above them. All of them were apprehended by the United States Border Patrol with the exception of Jose and two women.

The two females were picked up by the Border Patrol on June 11 and said they and Jose had continued walking after the rest of their group was detained. All of them were exhausted from the desert heat and after awhile, the women realized Jose was no longer walking behind them. They never saw him again.

Few details are available in Jose's case. He may have gotten lost in the desert.
