The organizations, unions, churches, academics, and people who have signed this document ask for your immediate intervention to achieve the appearance of a living professor Carlos René Román Salazar. He left his house in Villa Los Laureles in Santa Cruz Xoxocotlan in his gray Mazda-CX7 wagon, with license plates TWS4400. The last news of his was through a message, sent to one of his colleagues around 8:00 pm, March 14, 2011, which told of his location as he drove to a work meeting.
