Elvia Cruz Ortiz has been missing for almost 34 years. The few details available (new mom, possibly pregnant again) alone should have gotten her far more attention than she seems to have gotten. I found few results on the Internet for. On Facebook, I found only one result, a plain photo with hew details and no shares. Ortiz is on the bad side side of unequal missing persons searches. Surely someone is out there missing her. She has a child who is now in her thirties. That child needs answers.

Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Elvia Cruz Ortiz and/or her possible baby? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in their disappearances?
