Details of Disappearance

Baliton was last seen in Berkeley, California on May 13, 2017. She worked as the live-in caregiver for an 80-year-old Chinese woman who lived in Hong Kong. The woman and Baliton went to the United States so the woman could see her granddaughter graduate from the University of California at Berkeley. During the trip, Baliton disappeared.

The family was at an on-campus restaurant called the Cafe Strada at 9:00 a.m. when Baliton said she had to go to the bathroom. The Cafe Strada's bathroom was out of order, so she left the restaurant to look for one elsewhere. She never returned and has never been heard from again.

The circumstances of Baliton's disappearance are unclear. Her employers are afraid for her safety, as she was unfamiliar with the United States. She had been working for that family for fourteen years, and, prior to taking the job in Hong Kong, she lived in the Philippines. Her case remains unsolved.
