Mexico: Inside the first hunt for the missing in Michoacan state
Al Jazeera, 08 Oct 2021
The families of the disappeared in Mexico are searching the countryside for their loved ones' bodies.
Almost 80,000 people have vanished, many of them victims of either the continuing drug war or criminal gangs fighting the government for control of large swaths of the country.
As the number of missing has climbed, families have organised themselves into large groups that scour the countryside for their missing relatives.
Al Jazeera’s John Holman spent four days with one group of families in Mexico's western state of Michoacan.
