    Details of Disappearance

    Enrique disappeared from Albuquerque, New Mexico on March 17, 2011. He was last seen hanging out with friends near the corner of Zuni and Indiana Streets southeast. Although authorities believe he left of his own accord, his mother doesn't think he would have run away. She stated that although he was "hanging around with the wrong people" at the time of his disappearance, he had not joined a gang. One of Enrique's friends gave inconsistent statements about his disappearance, and it turned out he had some of his belongings, including Enrique's backpack and a rosary his grandfather had given him.

    Enrique may still be in the local area. Few details are available in his case.
