Cesar Velez

cesar_velez_04Cesar Velez is a U.S. Army Veteran who went missing from Guayaquil, Ecuador and was reported missing November 17, 2010. Cesar Velez traveled to Ecuador to visit family in September, 2010 and was supposed to return to Miami, Florida on November 17, 2010. Around November 17, 2010, Cesar received a call from his father, Peter Stalin Vélez Saltos (also referred to as Estalin) and was told to pick his father up at 5 AM to drive his father to Machala, Ecuador to see a vehicle. Cesar’s father was in the transportation business in Ecuador. The two were traveling in a Chevy Silverado with a blue license plate GRY-8489. They traveled first to their grandmother’s house in Mapasingue, a neighborhood in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. From there, they took a route for Urdesa, a neighborhood in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. It was during this leg of the trip that the two and their Chevy Silverado went missing. The Chevy Silverado was found several days later.

Investigations into their disappearance were conducted by local law enforcement and the only trace of them found was a very blurry video of what appeared to be Cesar and his father (Peter Stalin Vélez Saltos (also referred to as Estalin)) in the back of a pickup truck, which we were led to believe that they were kidnapped. The two have not been seen or heard from since and the family and law enforcement has not received any notes or other information about where they may be.
