Missing Baby Recovered; Investigation into Missing Mother Continues

A 7 month-old baby who went missing with her mother nearly three weeks ago has been found in Mexico.

On July 13, 2018, the FBI requested the public’s help in locating two missing U.S. citizens: a 21-year-old mother and her 7-month-old baby, last seen on June 27, 2018, leaving Laredo, Texas.

The child was located by Mexican authorities on July 17, 2017. FBI officials, working with the United States Consulate General’s office in Nuevo Laredo, were able to safely return the child to the United States this morning. The investigation into the disappearance of the child’s 21-year-old mother, Eunice Noemi Garza, continues.

Eunice Noemi Garza was last seen driving a white 2007 Saturn VUE sports utility vehicle, and was believed to be traveling to Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, possibly destined for her home in Nueva Era Colonia.

Garza is a Hispanic female, 5-foot-6 inches tall, approximately 195 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes.

The FBI, along with Homeland Security Investigations, Nuevo Laredo, and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office, is conducting the investigation. Anyone with information about Garza’s disappearance is encouraged to contact San Antonio FBI at 210-225-6741. Information can also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov. Individuals providing information may remain anonymous.
