UPDATE: April 20, 2017–Following intense global public outcry and extensive efforts to track him down, US citizen and human rights activist Hugo Castro was found alive on Tuesday, April 19th! Yet, while thankfully he is not another statistic in a country where thousands disappear each year, he is far from safe. Hugo appears to have been the victim of a serious crime. He has sustained severe injuries and remains in critical condition.
