Janet Castrejon, 44, from Las Cruces, New Mexico has been missing since June 19, 2015 from Rustler Park in Arizona. Janet went camping at the Rustler Park in the Chiricahua Mountains in Arizona with her mother and father.
Eduardo Castrejon, Janet’s father told NBC News that Janet went walking with her mother to the campground to mail a later and they stopped at the restroom. Janet waited outside and when her mother returned she was gone.
Janet suffered a traumatic brain injury from a car accident in 1988 and she has the mental capacity of a child and she needs assistance and has been living with her family since then. It is unlikely she walked away on her own, because of the terrain and she always stayed with the family.
Search and rescue teams searched the area but could not locate Janet. Janet’s brother came to the camp site to help search, too.
Janet also has memory problems and cannot see well, so it would be difficult for her to wander far, so the family believes she may have been led away.
“Please, for my daughter, if you saw something at all, come forward. We’re worried because of the fact she cannot see and people may not believe her. People may assume she’s acting when she cannot remember something. Whoever has her will soon realize this and we don’t know what they will do. She needs help now,” said Eduardo.
Janet is 5’3″ tall, 250 pounds and long dark hair she wears in a braid. She was last seen wearing a white shirt with black lettering, blue jeans and white tennis shoes with a red stripe on them.
