The attorney representing the family of 9-year-old Diana Alvares says there are new leads that may help with this case. Diana Alvares vanished from her San Carlos home back in May. Jorge Guerrero, who was renting out a room in the family's home, is a primary suspect in Diana's disappearance.
Tom Busetta who has been representing the family the past few months tells Four In Your Corner a major drug bust centered in the San Carlos community may help this case. The drug bust prompted deputies to question people in the area.
"I was advised by the Sheriff's Office and the investigators that it did provide additional leads," Busetta said. "Additional leads may lead to additional arrests or enforcement of additional charges against Mr. Guerrero."
Busetta says there is additional sensitive information that can't be released right now but is helping detectives with this case.
When Four In Your Corner asked if there is any reason to believe Diana may be in Mexico where her biological father currently lives, Busetta said that is still possible, and not enough has been done to check.
"I was advised by the FBI that they were in contact with their Mexico City office and the mexico city office informed the police there to go out to the village and that to this date hasn't been done."
Authorities believe Guerrero has ties in Okeechobee county. The family tells Four In Your Corner that anyone that has any information about Guerrero or Diana's whereabouts may come forward to help detectives with new leads.
Tom Busetta who has been representing the family the past few months tells Four In Your Corner any and all leads are followed up immediately by the Sheriff's Office and the FBI. Busetta says there are other counties actively working on the case hoping to find Diana, who went missing just days after her 9th birthday.
