Eighteen people previously reported missing showed up to vote for the presidential elections Sunday, according to the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Prosecutor General Luis Gonzalez said that the 18 missing people were discovered on Sunday within the final two hours of voting, according to Caracol Radio.
Gonzalez claimed that the discovery of the missing persons was part of a grander scheme saying, “It’s a strategy. Today allowed us to find missing people in all the voting centers, and up until this point we found 18 people who were missing with these kinds of reports.”
The prosecutor general also said that voting registration wasn’t the only means of finding missing people, but filtering through the databases allows authorities to concentrate on other similar cases.
