Cirena Artero, 16 years old
Mira Mesa, California
Last seen November 8th, 2019

A desperate Mira Mesa mother is pleading for tips after her teenage daughter disappeared, leaving behind a trail of disturbing clues.

November 8th seemed like an ordinary Friday. Tina Camacho remembers asking her daughter Cirena Artero, 16, about her day at school.

“We talked, and she said her day was okay,” said Camacho.

Cirena is one of Camacho’s five children.

“Around 6:45 p.m., we thought she went to her room. Around 7:30 p.m., we knew she was missing. Just devastated,” said Camacho.

A frantic search followed, of the house and the neighborhood. A missing persons report was filed. Days later, family members found Cirena’s phone, tossed a few blocks away between two homes.”I felt fear because what teenager runs off without their phone,” said Camacho.

The fear grew when she took a closer look at her phone.

“They had met online and that is through Instagram,” said Camacho.

Camacho says her daughter had met a 19-year-old online weeks before, with plans to meet that night.

“Online posts from some people who have known him say he has a gun,” said Camacho.

Camacho showed us (my source) screen grabs of his now-deleted Instagram page. On it, there is a photo of a handgun, a photo of some bloody fingers, and a photo of the teen with a gun gesture to his head

“It hurts. I just want to find her. Is she being held against her will? How is her well being?” said Camacho.

For her daughter, a good student who has never run away before, she has this message.

“Cirena, please come home. We want you home, and we love you,” said Camacho.

10news tracked down the sister of the 19-year-old. She declined comment, but says, “my brother is not dangerous and does not own a gun.”

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call San Diego Police at 619-531-2000.

Please continue to share in the Palm Desert area.

Appeal

Cirena Artero has been missing for 12 days, almost two weeks. It seems that a grown man preyed on her online and convinced her that he could give her what she believes that she wants. What was this teen girl actually doing when she was last seen? Who is the person who last saw her? Who or what is behind her cell phone being thrown away and abandoned? No teen does this to their cell phone on their own. Something else is going on. Something is not right.

Did the unidentified male approach Cirena, groom her, and lure her to vanish in order to be in their company? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Cirena Artero? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in her disappearance?

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call San Diego Police (California) at 1-619-531-2000. You may contact your local law enforcement. You may contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: 1-800-843-5678. If you see Cirena Artero, call 9-1-1 immediately!
