El Salvador: Find the disappeared children

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: AMR 29/002/2008

Ernestina and Erlinda Serrano Cruz were seven and three years old, respectively, when they disappeared on 2 June 1982. According to witnesses, the little sisters were captured by the Salvadorean army in the city of Chalatenango. The girls are among the more than 700 children who disappeared during the internal armed conflict (1980-1992). This appeal calls on the authorities to establish their whereabouts and bring those responsible to justice and to take steps to find all those children (now adults) who remain missing.
