Two years ago, recently returned missionary Elizabeth Salgado left classes at the Nomen Global Language Center in Provo, Utah, and no one ever saw her again. She had arrived in Provo just three weeks earlier to study English. Salgado's family is still searching for their missing daughter and sister, along with the family of Elizabeth Smart.
Two years after a young woman vanished in broad daylight from Provo's quiet city center, her family is calling on Utahns not to stop looking for her.
Smiling out from photos that have been continually shared since she disappeared, Elizabeth Elena Laguna-Salgado's image continues to circulate as the family begs for information about the last day she was seen and asks the public to watch for any sign of her.
A press conference Friday morning by Elizabeth Salgado's uncle began with a somber disclaimer. The investigation remains cold, and the family continues to live a "nightmare" of not knowing what happened to her.
"I'm asking the community, if they saw something, if they can remember that day, to please report it to the Provo Police Department," said Rosemburg Salgado, the woman's uncle. "I'm sure someone saw something, someone knows something."
