Lilly will always be remembered




Lilly,
It’s been almost a year since that fateful night you disappeared – 6/2/07. I want you to know
I’ll always remember you, your stories, your contagious laugh, sense of humor, kindness and most of all, your humanity. I’ll will continue my work to tell the world about you. And won’t stop until you are found. It’s my sincere wish and I pray that wherever you are, you are safe, healthy and strong.

It saddens me so much not knowing what happened to you. Palden is getting older, he’s talking now! And soon he will start asking questions.

I can only imagine your suffering those last few days at Christen’s. I know you were arguing & fighting with Christen and Kelly. Did something go terribly wrong? WHY hasn’t he made more of an effort to find you when you were engaged to be married?? I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through. And my heart is heavy for not being closer to you before that horrible night…

Until we meet again, stay strong, determined and never lose faith! Your family and friends love you and will never give up…

We NEED volunteers and SPONSORSHIP!


Friends, we are in need of some people to help post up flyers of Lilly all over town. As well as making some phone calls. We also need some help with fund raising events. And seeking out potential sponsors. Please contact me if you’re interested.

Next month will be the year anniversary of Lilly’s disappearance. With your help, we can make it an awareness event to remember. If you’re a business owner or organization and would like to help with sponsorship, don’t be shy. We have some great ideas and incentives to make it worth your time and effort.

I can’t stress enough how painful and difficult this past year has been since Lilly vanished into thin air. We are finally getting some attention (online) but still not enough people in Miami know about her disappearance. Her baby is getting older, he’s walking now! And soon he’ll start asking questions about his mom. Please help me get the answers this baby deserves. Stand with me and let’s show the world that every single human life is precious.

Touching poem about Lilly written by Sara

Lilly is Missing

Someone is missing.

She’s no longer around.

Not seen in her home.

Nor seen in her town.

Her baby is crying.

He misses her touch.

Her Mama’s heart breaking.

From missing her so much.

Her smile in photos,

still warms the heart.

Especially for Palden,

from whom she’d not part.

When a life so little,

so precious and pure,

hurts for his Mommy,

we must find the cure.

Her screams to be found,

can barely be heard.

For ears cannot hear,

those whom have no words.

Just one voice calling,

or even a few,

make not much difference,

unless you call too.

But, if we all join together,

we have a chance.

To find our sweet Lilly,

to revive her life’s dance.

WHERE IS LILLY???

These days I’ve been extremely busy. Have not been able to do as many postings as I’d like. Fortunately, we found some good people that have stepped up in helping Lilly’s story get out. The latest article on http://zerogossip.com/ features a story about Lilly. This is the direct link to the story http://zerogossip.com/2008/04/21/where-is-lilly-aramburo.aspx
I appreciate all the comments, please keep them coming.

Also, I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Deborah. I appreciate your selflessness and dedication in helping me and all families with missing loved ones. Thanks so much:-)

It’s been a very difficult journey this past year. Friends like the ones mentioned above have helped so much. Don’t know what I’d do without them.

Thanks to the internet, Lilly’s story being heard!

In the past few months there has been some sightings of Lilly. Unfortunately, they have not been confirmed. We do not know for sure that it is her or a look alike. It’s very frustrating to say the least. And extremely difficult for her mother. For those reading my blog for the first time, please read on and let me tell you about Lilly. Lilly vanished June 2, 2007. You may not have heard as most locally haven’t because she’s never been on the news!

As you can see, we depend on the internet to spread the news about Lilly. Here is a recent article written about her.

http://zerogossip.com/2008/04/13/miami-mom-leaves-to-pick-flowers-at-2-am-never-seen-again.aspx

And another
http://helpfindthemissing.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3075

We are currently organizing an event for the year anniversary of Lilly’s disappearance. If anyone would like to help with this please contact us. Unfortunately, we don’t have much support from the community right now. Probably because no one knows. That’s why we’re asking for your assistance. We need people to help post and distribute flyers all around Florida. This can be done any time at your own convenience. If you’re a truck driver and are thinking about lending a hand contact me today. Every one is encouraged to help. We also need a spokesperson for the family.
Another thing that would be of great benefit is to write letters to local media, newspapers and politicians. Unfortunately, people go missing every day and not enough media coverage or importance is given. Even police complain about media and their lack of coverage of cases involving missing or abducted children. It’s all too common.

Missing People are often Ignored by Police, Media and Society

Lucely “Lilly” Aramburo vanished a dark June night in 2007. Her fiance says she went for a walk at 2am. She’s never been seen or heard from ever again. This is so common these days. People go missing. Media people ignore the fliers from detectives, rarely reporting the story to the community. Right now there’s a child abduction that no one in Miami knows about because local media won’t report it to us. It’s not “juicy” enough, as Sergeant Varela told me and Lilly’s mom.
So why is it not important to members of our community? As humans and Americans we have the power to make a difference in small actions that we can do. However, most of us choose not to. Most of us are “too busy”. I ask, are you truly busy or are you distracted?
I urge you, please help me find my friend, Lilly. Or help the cause of the MISSING, there are countless others. You can help us get our stories heard.

Need help!

Would anyone out there like to help?? I’m drowning here, seeking assistance from Miami residents and internet volunteers.

We’re currently seeking help posting and distributing fliers, folks with computer skills to send emails, folks with experience in event organizing and contacts in the community. Students, housewives, retirees, please donate an hour to find a missing mother. Her family is desperate to find her. She’s a tiny itty-bitty girl in terrible danger. It’s been way too long, she would have made contact long time ago!

Please contact me today! I understand your time is very valuable. You can volunteer whenever you have a free hour to devote.

Thank you and peace be with you…

Where is Lilly???

South Florida family asks for help in locating 24 year old daughter, Lucely “Lilly” Aramburo MISSING since June 2007.

Lilly Aramburo NCMA Flyer
For the last nine months Lily Aramburo’s family has struggled to find her. It has been made harder since law enforcement, Miami Dade Police Department has not been helpful in the matter. The last person to see Lily, ex-boyfriend Christen Pacheco, says it was after 2am and they had been arguing and Lily walked out of his condo through the sliding door in the living room, taking nothing but a pair of bungee cords. According to Kelly Starling and Emmanuel DeJesus who were also there, Lily did not take her bag (purse) with money, her cellphone and most interesting her boots. Christen Pacheco told police that Lily had a history of attempting suicide. Lilly has not been seen or heard from ever since. Lilly disappeared from the Kendall area of Miami, the 7800 block of SW 82nd Street, near Dadeland Mall on June 1, 2007. 

Anyone with any information should immediately contact Miami Dade Police Department Detective Mancha 305-418-7245 or 305-418-7200 amancha@mdpd.com. You can also report your anonymous tip to Private Investigator Joe Carrillo at 305-926-3110.

Ideas for Searching For Your Child

Below is a very good resource in case your child goes missing. No one likes to think about such depressing ideas. But the reality is it’s best to educate yourself before the unthinkable happens.
Parents, it’s very important to have recent photographs of your child and their fingerprints, if possible. I would suggest ordering a safety ID Kit from one of the many nonprofit organizations out there. If your child goes missing, there are many organizations available to help you.

Is no news good news?

It’s been some time since my last post but here I am getting prepared to blog again. No good news updates yet. There’s been sightings but they’re not confirmed therefore not reliable. I can only hope that someone out there sees her and calls us. The detective won’t return our calls or emails. I’m finding it so difficult to get through to them. Why can’t they treat Lilly’s case with priority? At the very least, return our calls.

Please pray for Lilly and her family.
Thank you for your continued support.

Remembering Lily

In my life, I had never met someone so much like me. I loved spending time with Lilly. We shared a lot more than the same taste in music. Lilly loved poetry, rainy days, playing with children, art, walks on the beach, indy movies, playing with animals and being spontaneous. She was a peaceful person who was never afraid to stand up for others. I remember her as a free spirit, very easy-going, kind-hearted, and fun to be around. She was compassionate, humble and the furthest thing from materialistic and superficial. As a kid, Lilly enjoyed acting. She was a regular on a popular Spanish TV show, Sabado Gigante. She was very artistic and always kept a journal. Lilly loved animals, above all dogs were her absolute favorite. It wasn’t unusual to see her offering food/water and affection to homeless animals or seeing her give away her last dollar to a homeless person on the street. She practiced Buddhism and meditation, even living at a temple at one point. Her Buddhist name is Karma Drolkar. She will always remain that free spirit little pixie in my mind.

Lilly shared many stories with me about her life and her adolescence. She told me about her childhood, and the times she ran away as a teenager. She would leave her mother’s house to stay with her best friend. But always kept in touch. She suffered from depression and emotional problems at a young age, her best friends meant the world to her. Until she met the love of her life, her son’s father.

Here are my pictures of Lilly. Such a beautiful girl, inside and out. A kind, gentle person, someone I will never forget. Please say a prayer for her tonight. Pray for justice to be served and all missing loved ones to be found.

It’s so hard to believe she’s gone and it’s been such a long time since anyone has seen her. I worry so much about her, she’s constantly on my mind. If only law enforcement could feel a tinge of that concern, they would do everything in their power to find her. And justice would be served for Lilly Aramburo, my sweet pixie friend.

We’ve made progress in Lilly’s case!!

I’m ecstatic to report back that there has been progress! For one, Lilly’s mom went on Univision, a program which will air in a few short weeks. The producers of the show even made a financial contribution! It’s not all that much but it’s something and it helps alleviate some financial hardship for the benefit of Lilly’s baby, Baby Palden. He’s so precious! I wish I had the time now to explain a little bit about his name. Let’s just say he’s blessed.

Another beautiful thing that has manifested is that some awesome private investigators are going to help out, donating their own time to the case. Wow, I’m still in shock about the kindness of strangers. They say they’re going to help get media attention for Lilly and get her on America’s Most Wanted!

I’ll report back soon! Peace to all…

Quick Update


Haven’t had much time lately between work, kids and my mission to find Lilly. I’m so behind! Thankfully, I work from home and I love what I do. Bad thing is I get distracted easily.

I have an update about Lilly’s case. Lily’s mother and I paid a visit to Miami Dade Police Detective Aaron Mancha. We’ve been trying to talk to him to get an update but since he never returns our calls, we went to the police department. We wanted to know why Christen and the others who were in the apartment when Lily “left”, hadn’t been interviewed yet. His reply was that he had tried calling him but he hasn’t returned his calls. He also mentioned visiting his apartment a few times but he wasn’t home and so he left his business card with a note for Christen to call him. We persuaded him to try again. And he did. But again he wasn’t there. Another business card was left at his door.

We took the opportunity to go to the neighborhood and talk to neighbors, gather information. We waited around and eventually got to see and visit with Christen. He provided more details about what was happening the night Lily disappeared and the people that were there in the apartment. He said that Lily left after a big argument they had. He said she was wearing pajamas and didn’t have shoes on or take any personal belongings with her.

Lily’s mom and I spent a lot of time lately driving up and down the streets of Miami, Coconut Grove and Overtown searching for Lily. No one has seen her. But we did find Kelly, (pictured above with Lucely, Lily’s mother) in Coconut Grove. Kelly went to school with Lily and was there that night. She had bruises on her face and body, which she said were thanks to Christen.

We tried calling the investigator but can’t ever reach him and he doesn’t return our calls.

I found out about another beautiful young lady by the name of Heather Riggio that is missing from North Miami Beach since May 2007. I haven’t seen her in the news either.

Finally met Detective Mancha

I went to see Detective Mancha, the detective from Miami Dade Police assigned to Lilly’s case on Monday with the new evidence I found. I think it shows a possible motive. I asked Detective Mancha where we’re at.

I’ll tell you where we’re at, absolutely NO progress in 6 months!! He still hasn’t questioned her boyfriend, one of the last people to see her. He said that he’s been out to his apartment a few times but he’s never there. He says he’s left various business cards asking him to call. And surprise surprise, he hasn’t called. I’m so frustrated with police and media.

I practically begged him to help with a press release. And (as expected) he washed his hands of it. It’s not him, he has to submit it to P.I.O Police Information Office, which is media relations for the police. But after everything, the fact that he misspelled her name on the flyer, the fact that he’s let all this time fly without pinning down the boyfriend, etc- he can’t even make a press release happen. What ever happened to compassion? Lilly is a human being, a precious one to her family and friends. So why can’t they even get her picture up on the news/newspaper, etc?
I am determined more than ever to continue this mission to find her. As long as I remain in this world, I vow to never stop seeking justice for my precious friend, Lilly.

I did get something accomplished though. I’ll let you know tomorrow after the fact. Wish us luck… we really need it. In this world, you must be white, middle-class, or from an important family to get any media attention or proper police investigation. It’s a sad realization, I’ve learned the hard way.

Please don’t stop praying for Lilly.
