Jalisco Human Identification Center.


The issue of missing persons in Jalisco, including the tourist city of Puerto Vallarta, has been a matter of concern both locally and nationally in Mexico. Over the past years, there has been an increase in cases of disappearances, causing distress and uncertainty in the affected communities. Entire families are plunged into despair as they receive no news of their loved ones, while authorities work to investigate these cases and find answers. The causes of these disappearances are diverse, including organized crime activity, territorial disputes, as well as socioeconomic and political factors. Many missing persons fall victim to the violence unleashed by drug cartels operating in the region, contributing to a sense of insecurity among the population. Additionally, lack of resources and corruption in some government agencies have hindered search and rescue efforts.

If you have a missing family member, we invite you to approach the El Pitillal Cultural Center. On April 25th and 26th from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, the Jalisco Human Identification Brigade will be conducting contextual interviews and DNA sampling. (No prior report is required, and fasting is not necessary). Remember that all our services are free and confidential.

Despite the efforts of authorities and civil organizations, many disappearances remain unresolved, leaving a painful void in the affected families. The fight to find the missing and provide justice to the victims is a daunting and complex task that requires collaboration from various sectors of society. Amidst this landscape, there remains hope that those who are still missing can be found and a safer future can be ensured for everyone in the region. The situation of missing persons in Jalisco and Puerto Vallarta has also drawn international attention, with human rights organizations expressing concern about the escalation of violence and impunity surrounding these cases. The emotional and psychological impact on the affected communities is profound, with entire families living in uncertainty and the constant pain of not knowing what has happened to their loved ones. In this context, the need to implement comprehensive strategies addressing the underlying causes of these disappearances and ensuring the protection of human rights for all individuals, as well as access to justice and truth for the victims and their families, becomes evident.

If you have any documents belonging to your missing family member, you can bring them to be added to the file (for example: identification documents, X-rays, general photographs, photographs of distinguishing features such as tattoos, dental records, birthmarks, etc.).
