FBI Seeks Public’s Help in Locating Missing Women

LAREDO, TX—The Federal Bureau of Investigation San Antonio Division, Laredo Resident Agency Office, is seeking information from the public about three missing women. Prior to their disappearance, the three women were last seen crossing into Nuevo Laredo at approximately 3 p.m. on March 3, 2021, in a white 2014 Toyota Corolla with Texas license plate number FVS-0792.

Blasa Guadalupe Palomo, a 38-year-old business owner who resides in Laredo, Texas, has brown eyes, long black hair, is approximately 5’3” in height and approximately 200 pounds and has a “Medusa” tattoo on her shoulder and a tattoo of a snake on her forearm. She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black pants, and black athletic shoes. Her daughter, 18-year-old Blasa Guadalupe (“Lupita”) Palomo, has brown eyes, black/blue ombre hair, is approximately 5’3” in height and approximately 150 pounds. She was last seen wearing a red sweatshirt. Perla Ercia is a 38-year-old woman who has brown eyes, short, dark, curly hair, is approximately 5’5” in height and approximately 250 pounds and has tattoo of an infinity sign on her left wrist. She was last seen wearing a black shirt.

The 18-year-old takes daily medications for numerous medical reasons and does not have those medications with her. Perla Ercia is a new mother with a three- to four-week-old baby at home in the care of her elderly mother, who also cares for Perla’s grandmother.

The women had gone to Nuevo Laredo so Perla could visit an eye doctor for an eye infection. There were no indications any of the women did not plan to return.

Although the whereabouts of the three women are unknown at this time, it is believed they are still in Mexico and may be the victims of a kidnapping. Perla has two additional elementary-aged children, as does 38-year-old Blasa.

The public is urged to call FBI San Antonio Division at (210) 225-6741 with any information. Tips can also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov. Individuals who provide information may remain anonymous.
