Urgent Assistance Sought for Missing Cuban Woman
Description not available

Melisa Odaisi Peraza Cabrera, a 24-year-old woman who had been missing since May 14, is in dire need of urgent assistance. She is part of a group of 19 rafters lost at sea. The feminist platform YoSíTeCreo en Cuba called for immediate help from authorities on Sunday after the young woman communicated her perilous situation to her family.

According to the source, a group of seven women and 12 men are adrift somewhere off the coast of Artemisa and/or Mayabeque. It is unclear whether they are off the northern or southern coast. YoSíTeCreo en Cuba reported that Melisa reached out to her family in the city of Cárdenas, in Matanzas, to inform them of the danger.

"Neither she nor anyone in the group was able to send their geolocation because they barely have any coverage or battery left. They have little water remaining, and we have lost contact since 3:12 PM Cuba time," the feminist platform stated, urging authorities to mobilize urgently to find them.

Previously, independent activist and journalist Marta María Ramírez reported that Peraza Cabrera was last seen in mid-May when she left her home to meet a man she had met through social media.

The young woman has three young children: a four-year-old girl, a two-year-old boy, and an infant daughter just four months old. Before contacting her family about the danger, the last news they had of Melisa was on May 27, when an acquaintance saw her on Ayestarán Street in Havana, walking with two men.

At that time, her family alerted authorities and feminist organizations, fearing she might be a victim of some form of violence. They provided a photo and a full description of the young woman, asking anyone who saw her to contact two family phone numbers or the police directly.

As of the publication of this note, neither authorities nor official media outlets have responded to the urgent plea for help for the rafters.
