The young woman of Spanish origin, María Dolores Márquez Muñoz, who was reported missing on the night of August 26 in San Felipe, was found dead on Friday, August 27, in an unpopulated area in the outskirts of the same town.
The search for the young woman began yesterday, following an emergency report made by the victim's boyfriend, Jose Luis Lopez Gonzalez, who said that they rented a Volkswagen Golf, with license plates WFJ8188, in the municipality of Tijuana and went to the Santuario field, located at kilometer 11+500 on the San Felipe-Puertecitos highway.
The couple arrived at the point but found out that it was a private field, so they drove back to the highway. However, during the trip on the dirt road, the vehicle got stuck. Faced with the emergency and the lack of communication, the couple began to walk through the desert, but after two hours without results, they began to suffer the ravages of the intense heat of the area, which has reached over 50 degrees Celsius during this season.
José Luis said that he began to feel sick, from weakness to vomiting, so he took refuge in the shade. Unlike him, the young Spanish woman decided to continue her hike in search of the road. He never saw her alive again. José Luis recovered after a few hours and continued with the walk and reached the road where he managed to ask for support from travelers in the area.
Upon arriving at the community, they requested the support of all the authorities and rescuers, who began the search. The operation spread throughout the area in various groups. The operation culminated this Friday afternoon with the location of his remains in the desert.
