Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view
entire case )
Yeritza was last seen in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico on February 10, 2001. She has never been heard again. Authorities believe she was abducted by Amilcar Matias Torres, who is currently serving a twenty-year sentence in prison for soliciting sex from several teenage girls he met on the internet. A photo of him is posted below this case summary. Investigators discovered photos of Yeritza buried in a bag under his patio, and his brother confirmed Matias Torres knew her. Police believe he may be a serial killer; he's a suspect in the disappearances of
Kamyle Burgos Ortiz and
Cristina Ruiz-Rodriguez. He has never faced charges in any of the cases, and Yeritza's family hopes she's still alive. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

MISSING PERSONS CASES, 2006 - 2017
CASES ARE LOCATED HERE
CASES THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY SOLVED ARE LOCATED HERE
Since 2006 I have personally worked over 1,000 missing person cases and have
literally spent thousands of hours of my own time trying to help find missing
people, especially missing children...and always for free.
The cases listed here are from my old site, unfortunately, after I got sick, I
lost my site and any backup copies I had, so these are direct links to
archive.org's Wayback Machine. In time I will transfer these old cases to my new
site. I've had a pretty good track record in helping to locate loved ones, and
I'm always willing to help in new cases as well. To view all my past
cases right now please visit
