The search continues for Juan Camilo Burgos Méndez, 32, of Bogotá. He disappeared last Wednesday, February 28, at 1:30 pm at 72nd Street and Carrera Séptima.

He is 1.69 tall and slim. He is an architect by profession and currently His family and friends are mobilizing with authorities to find out his whereabouts.

EL TIEMPO spoke with Diego Burgos, brother of Juan Camilo. He explained that the last thing they knew was that he visited a customer at 72nd and 9th Avenue at 11 a.m. and left at 1:30 p.m. “He was supposedly supposed to visit other customers, but at that moment he lost his cell phone signal and was no longer responsive.”

The family guesses that something happened to him during this period, but no clue has been found yet in the investigations carried out by the Prosecutor’s Office CTI.

He was wearing navy blue jogger pants and a black hooded sweatshirt at the time of his disappearance.

According to data recorded in the Missing Persons and Corpses Information System Network of the National Institute of Forensic Medicine and Forensic Sciences, there were 2,378 disappearances in Bogota in 2023.

Although there is a decrease compared to 2022, when 2,435 cases were presented, It is alarming that underage characters repeatedly appear as protagonists in more than 30 percent (783) of the entries.

Deputy Mayor Luis Alejandro González Ubaque has been working on this challenging task since June 25, 2011. His expertise and the qualifications of his working group led to an average of 91 percent of cases being solved in a city where cases are sometimes reported. one case per day and others 18 or more cases.

The cases that preoccupy them are rebellious teenagers with bad family relationships, men and women running away from debts and love disappointments, people who go to parties and end up being scolded, victims of traffic accidents, and cases of mental illness that are considered voluntary disappearances. most. . On the other hand, there are enforced disappearances that represent the greatest challenge. And Bogota has it all.

The first fantasy they want to deny is that you have to wait a certain amount of time to report missing. “Every family knows when a latent risk arises, so as soon as they receive an alert they should report the case to the National Institute of Forensic Medicine, which is responsible for recording all reports.” These are also recorded in the Missing Persons and Corpses Network Information System (SIRDEC).

Then comes one of the most difficult steps for families and friends of a missing person; this ignores the fact that he is one of the corpses waiting to be recognized at the Institute. “If this is not the case, what is most important is the data contained in the interview, detailed information about the person and the characteristics of the time, manner and place of disappearance.”

The unit also has a leading expert prosecutor who puts all his expertise at the disposal of citizens and activates all emergency call mechanisms. An investigator from the Judicial Police, SIJIN or the Attorney General’s Office is always available. “Our goal is for people not to have to go from one place to another. Our headquarters is at 19th Street and 27th Street, and that’s where the search begins. “We can say that 80 percent of 100 percent of those who disappeared were people who disappeared due to voluntary action.”
