Authorities are searching for a 32-year-old Australian woman who resides in Mérida.
The search kicked off when the woman’s 2-year-old daughter was found by herself in Cancún.
Also missing is the woman’s husband, Jorge Luis Aguirre Estudillo, who is a Mexican citizen.
The woman, Tanhee Louise Shanks, was last spotted at El Cuyo on April 30, in the far eastern end of Yucatán state.
As a result of the disappearances, state authorities have activated a state-wide “Alba Alert.”
Shanks is a redhead with wavy hair, a large tattoo on her right leg, and stands 5-feet-4-inches tall.
Authorities are requesting people with any information about Shanks or Estudillo to file a report at 800-002-6237, extension 41164.
