Marizela Perez turns 19 today.

Happy Birthday, Emem!

As you know, my beloved cousin has been missing nearly two months.

Her parents, family, and friends continue to search Seattle and beyond. Strangers near and far are working on the case. Praying. Hoping. Pushing. But there have been no new leads since the last time I updated you. No bank activity. No online or phone activity. No progress in the police investigation.

We have been pressing the Jack in the Box Corporation to help us obtain surveillance video at one of its University District-area restaurants on the corner near her last known whereabouts. But still no help.

We are waiting to hear whether Google will help us obtain crucial web search/browsing history that could shed light on what happened, and whom she may have contacted or met, on the March 5 afternoon she disappeared. But still no word.

We have pressed the police to issue warrants to AT&T, Facebook, and AOL to preserve and obtain all relevant perishable data that could rule in or rule out foul play. But still no progress.

Emem, if you are out there: We are sending you all our love and strength.

Know that you are missed and we are doing everything we can to bring you home safely.

On May 8 in Seattle, family and friends will hold a benefit concert in honor of Marizela. All proceeds will support the search for Marizela.

In honor of Marizela’s birthday, please watch the family’s video about the benefit concert below, embed, and spread the word.

If you are able, please join us. You can lend your talent and time:

Sunday, May 8 · 6:30pm – 9:30pm

UW Ethnic Cultural Theater

3931 Brooklyn Ave

Seattle, WA

The concert will have live music, spoken word, dances, and different speakers from the University of Washington Seattle Campus, but will also be open to the audience if they want to perform or say a few words. There will be a silent auction before and during the event with amazing art created by Marizela herself. Other organizations will be selling different things and a portion of their proceeds while help the Perez family. There will also be a raffle.

Doors will open at 6:30PM

The show will start at 7:00PM

The price is a sliding scale of $5-$10.

On behalf of the Perez family, we hope that you can come to this event and help support in any way possible or by inviting others to attend.
