She takes a taxi to go to give birth, but disappears: “She took a photo of the taxi driver”

She took a taxi to go to the clinic to give birth, but she disappeared. Gabriela Sevilla would take a photo of the taxi driver who was supposed to accompany her before losing track of her.

Gabriela Olga Victoria Sevilla Torello disappeared on October 19th, around 7.20 pm, in Pasaje Italia, in the district of Surco in Peru. According to the international press, the woman took a taxi from her home to reach the hospital. The 30-year-old was due to give birth shortly thereafter.

The Ministry of the Interior, the police and the Ministry of Health are working on the case. The authorities are trying to reconstruct the incident through the security cameras located near the house to understand which taxi the girl got on.

The investigator suspects that the young woman may have been a victim of human trafficking. “It would be terrible – the investigators said – but it is not unlikely. We are also carrying out research in other hospitals in the area because she may have been taken to another hospital to give birth. Perhaps she was unable to communicate with her family”

The 30-year-old’s husband told investigators that Gabriela left the house alone. “She was going into labor – she explained – but I was not at home, I was at work. When I returned she was already gone”.

The young mom would have booked a taxi through the Beat app. As soon as she got on board, she took a photo of the taxi driver who took charge of the ride. The company has released a note in which it asks all its employees to provide clear and precise information on the services provided on 19 October to reconstruct what happened in Sevilla.

According to the taxi drivers, however, a ride with the itinerary requested by the young woman has never been recorded. The missing girl’s mother pointed out that her daughter took a photo of the taxi driver who was supposed to take her to the hospital. The image was sent via messages to her partner, Ramiro Gàlvez.
