In a remarkable display of determination and cross-border cooperation, the Searching Mothers of Sonora, a vigilant collective focused on finding missing persons, recently managed to locate a man missing for two decades. The man, known as Mario Becerril López, was reported missing in the United States 20 years ago when he was just 27 years old. The discovery underscores the significant impact of community-led search efforts and brings a renewed sense of hope to numerous families awaiting the return of their loved ones.
A Missing Report from Two Decades Ago
On August 13, 2023, a missing person report was filed with the Ontario, California Police Department for Mario Becerril López. Little did anyone know at the time that it would take 20 years and the relentless efforts of a group based thousands of miles away in Sonora, Mexico, to finally locate him. The details of Mario’s life in the intervening years, how he ended up where he was found, and his condition upon being discovered remain undisclosed.
Searching Mothers of Sonora: A Beacon of Hope
The Searching Mothers of Sonora, or Madres Buscadoras de Sonora as they are known in Spanish, is a collective that has dedicated itself to the noble cause of finding missing individuals. Their tireless efforts have brought solace to many families, and their recent achievement in locating Mario emphasizes the substantial impact of their work. The group not only located Mario but also took care of him, fulfilling his dream of seeing the sea before reuniting him with his family.
With the support of the Sonora government and the State Search Commission, Mario was transferred to Baja California. There, after two long decades, he was able to spend the New Year holidays with his loved ones, a reunion that was nothing short of a miracle for his family.
