Marizela: Missing For One Year

06 March 2012 @ 14:14

It was one year ago yesterday that eighteen year old Marizela Perez, cousin of Michelle Malkin, went missing in Seattle.

From Mrs. Malkin:

The not-knowing is every parent’s worst nightmare. It brought normal life to a standstill for Marizela’s parents, Edgar and Jasmin. And yet, they have to keep living and working and praying for their only daughter. Because that is what they must do. Their strength and dignity through all the suffering has been an inspiration to me.

There have been no new developments in Emem’s case. No word from the police or the medical examiner’s office. No activity on her bank accounts or social media accounts.

And no response from the Google legal department to our request for help in January.

Google has not been of very much help at all.


We have posted Marizela’s missing persons flyer, photos, videos and more at The tip line number for citizens who may have any information that might aid in the search is 1-855-MARIZEL. We remain eternally grateful to all those who have supported, aided, and prayed for Emem and her parents from day one.

Reminder: As we’ve noted since the day of her disappearance, she was taking anti-depressants at the time of her disappearance. The daunting possibility that she took her life, and the signs that cannot be ignored, still weighs heavily on our minds — as do all the other frightening possibilities as her case remains unsolved and unresolved. I’ve urged you before to support volunteer groups that provide hope and solace for those in need. To honor Marizela, I ask again that you do so if you are able.

Cherish life.

Please, if you’re the praying time, say a few for Miss Perez and her family.

God bless them.

    This is a terrible story. I wish there were some answers for her family. I hope this is just a young girl who decided to take off and not be found, but I fear this is something far worse. I pray for her and her family.

    How terribly sad. It’s incredible that she walked out of that store and was never seen again.
