    Appeal

    Keyla Contreras has been missing for over 16 years. She is deaf and does not speak. It is sad and unfortunate that hers is a “few details are available,” case. Without even basic details, it is very difficult for the public to be on the lookout for a missing person. They will not know what to look for. Keyla Contreras is a vulnerable missing teen girl. Being unable to hear or speak, Keyla is more vulnerable to predators. Has foul play been considered in her case? Nothing is known about her family. But someone (s) is surely missing this girl. What happened to Keyla? Someone (s) knows something! Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Keyla Contreras? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) responsible for her disappearance?

    If you have information about this case, you may contact the New York Police Department at: (212) 694-7781. If you have any info on Contreras, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You can also submit tips via Internet. Click here to leave your tip online. by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. NamUs Number: MP13718 Case number KNMP431

    Keyla Contreras, age 19, went missing from the East Harlem (aka Spanish Harlem) neighborhood of Manhattan, New York on January 12, 2012.

    She is deaf, and non-verbal. She was last seen at 7am leaving her building at 2390 2nd Ave, and never returned.

    I really, really, really wish I had more to say about this case – any clue as to whether she would have left voluntarily, or if she was more likely the victim of a crime. There’s just nothing there.

    No website for her, no queries from family or friends, no DNA or dentals entered in NamUs. The Village Voice newspaper made an attempt at generating some publicity for her just after her disappearance occurred, but some very insensitive readers apparently thought the comments section of the article was an appropriate platform to bash the author, over her use of the term “deaf-mute”. This, of course, led to a heated debate, which led to name calling and profanity, but very little concern for Keyla.

    This is disturbing to me. Being deaf and non-verbal makes one vulnerable to a number of crimes, and I don’t see much evidence that anyone cares. I’m sure people *do* care, but I’m trying to see the internet from Keyla’s perspective, assuming she is alive and well, and browsing the web herself. I’d want her to see that someone cares.

    This isn’t the typical sort of case that I write about, most are not nearly as recent and most have more details that I can ‘run with’, but sometimes the lack of publicity compels me to write.

    The below article isn’t about Keyla, but is about the neighborhood where she lived. I am going to contact this magazine and see if they will run a (hopefully more detailed) story on Keyla. It’s all I can think of to do. If anyone would like to join me in this attempt, their email is hwcontact@yahoo.com
