FBI seeks help in finding missing teen Elizabeth Gonzalez

SALT LAKE CITY — A 14-year-old Ogden girl has been missing for several days while visiting her grandmother in Mexico.

Elizabeth “Ely” Gonzalez was last seen in Mexico City. Her mother has not heard from her since their last phone call on June 30.

Special Agent Steven Hymas says they believe a stranger took her.

“There is surveillance video of her getting into a taxi. We believe she was manipulated by an adult into getting into that taxi, and we haven't seen her since,” Hymas said.

His mother and the FBI are asking for the public's help.

Speaking at the FBI's Salt Lake City office, Elizabeth's mother, Alma Soreque, made a heartfelt plea for anyone with information about her daughter to come forward.

“We miss her so much. Every day… it’s a nightmare not knowing where she is and how she’s doing,” Soreque said.

At the time of her disappearance, Elizabeth Gonzalez was wearing dark blue jeans, a black hoodie and black and white Vans.

Anyone with information regarding Gonzalez can contact the FBI's Salt Lake City field office at (801) 579-1400.
