Description : The release tells the story of the anguishing wait of two families for information about the fate of their loved ones who disappeared during Colombia's ongoing conflict. Julia and Elias, farmers who live in the north of the country, have not seen their 19 year old son Luis since December 2010 but suspect he joined an armed group active near their home. Sandra is also desperate for news about her husband Francisco, an army officer, who she has not seen since October 2008. Both families are being helped by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which also works closely with the National Forensic Institute in Bogotá where remains are brought for identification. Over the past 3 years more families have come forward to register their missing with the Colombian National Registry, which currently contains some 50,000 names.
