A message claiming to be from a kidnapped woman and written on a piece of toilet paper has gone viral on social networks.
The mysterious message was found in a department store in the city of Puebla, in the municipality of the same name, in the state of Puebla, located in the South Central Area of Mexico.
Someone had found the message, and then shared an image of it through social media reportedly to help the young woman, as reported in local newspaper MTPNoticias.
The message allegedly belonged to a missing woman named Ingrid Saucedo Cervantes, who asks for help and for the person who found it to contact her family.
In the message, the woman explained that she was in a critical situation since her partner had isolated her and taken her to Puebla, which is not her home state.
The message said: “If someone reads this message, help me, my partner took my cell phone, I can’t communicate with my family, I’m not from Puebla, I’m from Morelos, my name is Ingrid Saucedo Cervantes, HELP”.
The Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the origin of the image which was published on a social media profile that appears to be located in the State of Puebla.
In the state of Puebla, two out of every three women suffer some type of violence, according to data issued by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography.
