Police hunting for missing Miss World contestant who has vanished days before she was due to fly to London for this year’s competition
Police are hunting for a missing beauty queen due to fly to London later this week for Miss World 2014.
Reigning Miss Honduras Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, vanished with her sister Sofia after a friend's birthday party in their home town of Santa Barbara, last Thursday.
Police have said the girls' disappearance is not being treated as a crime, but today it emerged four people, including her sister's boyfriend have been arrested.
Alvarado is no stranger to the island, as she represented her country in this year’s Reina de la Costa Maya Pageant held pm Ambergris Caye.

The missing women were last seen getting into a vehicle as they left the party. Police chief Jose Coello originally said they were not treating the pair's disappearance as a crime, but confirmed the four arrests.
'Four people are under arrest. They include the owner of the party venue and Sofia Trinidad's boyfriend. They are being investigated,' Mr Coello said.
The case has caused consternation in the notoriously violent central American country, home to the most dangerous city on the planet.
