The Tijuana Police are still looking for a couple of migrants based in Los Angeles who traveled to that border city on Friday to collect some income.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office of Baja California, Jesús Rubén López Guillén, 70, and his wife María Teresa López, 65, left their home in Garden Grove, in Orange County, around 7:00 a.m. Friday. His plan was to collect the rents of his properties in Tijuana and return to the United States that same day. The total amount they would collect is unknown.
They were left seeing their son-in-law there, who would accompany them to a bank to get money and then change that amount to dollars. Later they would go to their homes in the Obrera neighborhood to collect the income personally and return to the US. But they never did.
“They arrived in Tijuana and went to the bank to get money from some income that they deposited there. That money they took in pesos went to change them to dollars at a exchange house. From there they went to other houses that they have for rent in the Obrera neighborhood to collect money that they were paid in cash. But after that it was no longer known whether they crossed the border or not. They lost track of them, they no longer had contact with them, ”said Raúl Gutiérrez, spokesman for the Prosecutor’s Office, in a telephone interview with Univision Noticias.

For example, in the exchange house they went to, the bank they went to, if they saw them at certain times to coincide with the schedules, the circumstances. All that is being checked by the agents. In that phase (of the investigation) we are still. We cannot specify anything yet, ”Gutierrez told this media.
