The Recinos Raymundo brothers, who disappeared in 2014, add to the list of minors not located in Guatemala

The brothers Emerson Jared and Kyleb Aaron Recinos Raymundo disappeared on October 14, 2014, when they were 13 and 12 years old, respectively, and although time has passed, the Alba-Keneth Alert that was issued at that time continues to be active.

Because both minors have not been reported as located, the alert system is launched at the beginning of the year in order to make the case visible and contribute to the location, although for obvious reasons their physical characteristics have changed.

The case of the Recinos Raymundo brothers is one of many in Guatemala where, although the Alba-Keneth alerts are activated, their location is not possible.

According to the website of the Operational Unit of the National Coordinator of the Alba-Keneth Alert System of the Attorney General’s Office (PGN), from January 1 to November 21, 2021 (last count), 5 1,549 alerts for the disappearance of children and adolescents, of which 3,890 were deactivated.

With the above, it is clear that 1 thousand 659 alerts are still active, as in the case of the Recinos Raymundo brothers.

However, when reviewing the section on missing minors, the figures tend to increase compared to the alerts, as it is clarified that it may contain information on one more minors in that condition.
