She seeing signs in their search for newscasts called numbers that appeared, was able to talk with his sister and traveled to Villahermosa, Tabasco, where were the search engines, to be with her for a day and re-establish contact.
Each of these reunions were «medicine for the soul» of women who hope to someday be them who are instead of hugging his family.
Meanwhile, they comfort with a hug between them, with each other give encouragement and with knowing who are still planning searches from where they are for one day to find them all.
