Her identity card and cell phone were found on February 19, near the place where she was supposed to take a public bus to the National University of Colombia in Palmira.
According to her family's report, the activist might have been approached by criminals in the Belalcazar neighbourhood, close to her parents home. However, political motivations for her disappearance have not been ruled out.
In Cali, Colombian environmental activist Hildebrando Velez, is leading the local efforts in the search for Sandra. He spoke to us about the need for the international community to know about her case in order to put pressure on the authorities to speed up their search.
Too many environmentalists have been murdered or "disappeared" in Colombia. We need to send a message to the Colombian authorities to show them that we are monitoring their response.
Please add your name to the letter which will be sent to the Director of the Presidential Program for Human Rights, the Ombudsman and the Attorney General.
