This group is composed of mothers who launched their own search for their missing loved ones, mostly.

The search launched by the Solecito Veracruzano Collective began on August 3 in that area, where there is abundant vegetation, wetlands, beach sand and ruins of what once were makeshift homes. As a result of the search, the collective found human remains wrapped in plastic.

According to neighbors, the area is guarded by ‘hawks’ or people working as informers for organized crime, especially during the days when members of the Collective carry out the search tasks, the newspaper La Jornada published.

Juan Jesus Canaan, a member of the Collective for the Search of the Missing People of Iguala, in Guerrero state, said that since August 8 the remains started to appear, some of them seem to be the remains of people killed nearly six months ago.

‘On Monday we found three graves, on Tuesday found eight, some of them were mass graves. On Wednesday we found seven graves, on Thursday another seven graves, and yesterday another six, in total so far, we have found 28 graves’, Juan Jesus Canaan said.
