Reaching out here. Had 3 friends driving a Chevy Colorado z71 driving down to punta San Jose (the lighthouse) from Ensenada to surf and camp on Saturday April 27th. They were supposed to leave the next day Sunday the 28th to check into an air bnb near K38. They did not check in and we haven’t heard from them.

Any info or help with be greatly appreciated.

Do any of them have a phone with GPS locator capability?

Any type of tracking device in their vehicle?

Questions:
1) Were they familiar with the area?
2) Did they have a flexible schedule?
3) Did they have any contact while in Mexico prior?

That area is fairly well traveled, if they had a mechanical issue, someone would have probably helped them out within a day I'm sure. Haven't been there in close to 10 years though, so no idea what its like anymore. Granted I stopped going to that area after someone going through my campsite at night.

Posted to Talk Baja FB group by "Debra Robinson" at 8:51am (PT) today:

"Reaching out to anyone who has seen my two sons . They have not contacted us since Saturday 27th April. They are travelling with another friend an American citizen . They were due to book into an Airbnb in Rosarito after there camping weekend but they did not show up. Callum is a type one diabetic so there is also a medical concern. Please contact me if you have seen them or know their whereabouts."

According to Debra Robinson, they did not have a flexible schedule. Says work commitments were missed on Monday this week, etc:

"They had an Airbnb booked in Rosarito that they did not book into. Callum had work commitments that he has missed which is very out of character."

OK yes, missing work and being diabetic, that's not a great scenario. Surprised there isn't anyone else coming through the woodwork who may have been in the area this weekend. Wife was just reading through the TB post as well.

Some of the local independent journalists are best source of news. This FB news source posted the story of the phone of one of the missing being found on a meth head in Maneadero, https://www.facebook.com/Patrulla.646

Son tres los turistas desaparecidos en Ensenada; hay una mujer detenida

Tres surfistas extranjeros que estaban de viaje por Baja California fueron reportados como desaparecidos, luego de que se comunicaran por última ocasión el sábado 27 de abril por la mañana con sus conocidos en Estados Unidos. Hay una persona detenida, porque traía un celular de uno de los desaparecidos además de ser sorprendida en posesión de más de media libra de cristal.

Tras el reporte de familiares, amigos y la Embajada de Estados Unidos, Seguridad Pública confirmó que se tienen en calidad de desaparecidos a Jake Robinson de 30 años de edad de origen Australuano, Carter Rhoad de 30 años de edad, de origen estadounidense y Callum Robinsons de 30 años de edad, de nacionalidad Australiano, quienes viajaban a bordo de un pick up blanco marca Colorado.

Los tres son buscados en la zona costera de Ensenada, en las inmediaciones de La Bocana de Santo Tomás en la zona conocida como San Juan de las Pulgas y Punta San José 150 kilómetros al sur de la ciudad de Ensenada, bordeando la costa, con apoyo de elementos de la FGE.

En la misma zona se encontraban familiares de los desaparecidos como parte del equipo de búsqueda, con drones y GPS, ya que no hay muchas referencias de donde pudieron haber ido.
Cabe destacar que mientras se realizaba la búsqueda, se encendió uno de los celulares de los desaparecidos que se ubicaba en la zona de Maneadero parte alta, donde fue detenida una mujer identificada como Ary N de unos 25 años de edad, en posesión del mismo.
La mujer que traía el celular sería puesta a disposición de la Fiscalía General de la República, ya que fue encontrada también en posesión de Cristal.

Cabe destacar que en las instalaciones de Seguridad Pública hay un fuerte operativo tras la detención de la mujer.

Three tourists missing in Ensenada; one woman in custody.

Three foreign surfers traveling through Baja California were reported missing, after they last communicated on Saturday, April 27 in the morning with their acquaintances in the United States. There is one person detained, because she was carrying a cell phone belonging to one of the missing people in addition to being caught in possession of more than half a pound of meth.

After the report from family, friends and the United States Embassy, Public Security confirmed that Jake Robinson, 30 years old of Australian origin, Carter Rhoad, 30 years old, of American origin and Callum Robinsons, are considered missing. 30 years old, of Australian nationality, who were traveling aboard a white Colorado pickup truck.

The three are wanted in the coastal area of Ensenada, in the vicinity of La Bocana de Santo Tomás in the area known as San Juan de las Pulgas and Punta San José 150 kilometers south of the city of Ensenada, bordering the coast, with support of elements of the FGE.

In the same area there were relatives of the missing as part of the search team, with drones and GPS, since there are not many references to where they could have gone.

It should be noted that while the search was being carried out, one of the cell phones of the missing people was turned on, which was located in the upper part of Maneadero, where a woman identified as Ary N, about 25 years old, was detained in possession of it.

The woman who had the cell phone would be placed at the disposal of the Attorney General's Office, since she was also found in possession of meth.

It should be noted that there is a strong operation in Public Security facilities after the woman's arrest.

To the families and the friends,
We wish you solace and strength during this horrendous time. Although we aren’t able to fully comprehend what has happened in your life and the life of your friends, we are with you. We are here if there’s any small way to help. Your kids looked like great human beings. As a fellow surfer and human I offer you my sincere and absolute love and condolences.
