Push PLAY to hear an interview about Roy Rivera Hidalgo disappearance, on BBC World Service.

“Letty Hidalgo’s son went missing when he was only a teenager. He is one of nearly 27,000 Mexicans who have ‘disappeared’ between 2006 and 2012. When the state stopped looking into his case, Letty took up the quest to find her missing son. She is now one of 16 relatives turned investigators behind a citizen-led forensic team set up to record and investigate these disappearances. They have enlisted the expertise of Dr Ernesto Schwartz, a Mexican academic leading a team at the UK’s Durham University, to help train them, and they plan to launch their campaign across Mexico next month.”
