"Pink crosses located in some sectors of Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, seem to have lost the sense they had at the time as a symbol for justice for the disappearance and death of hundreds of women. It's been over 20 years since the first case was recorded and the stories of how the vanishing trail of some young women -as if they had been swallowed by the Earth- continue. It is still common to find a mother trying to give the most accurate description of what her daughter was wearing the last time she saw her, but the end of the stories are not always what they expected."
