Wilmer Cartajena missing for over 20 days and the family wants answers

The Belize Police Department is still clueless and has no significant lead into the disappearance of 27 year old Wilmer Cartajena. The fisherman, who lived in the Basil Jones Area located some 12 miles north of San Pedro Town, was last seen on March 24th. After 21 days of being missing San Pedro Police says that there has been "no solid lead."

According to the Cartajena family, their desperation is growing and they are in a state of "uncertainty" and fear for the worse. "We are confused, uncertain fearful for his life but at the same time we are trying to be hopeful for good news. You can imagine how it feels knowing that a love one is missing and you know nothing of the person. Our family is devastated and we are simply looking for whatever answers" said one of the brothers of Cartajena.

San Pedro Police has organized several searches for Cartajena following vague leads but none has turned successful.
