Justice for Lily Hunger Strike in Miami

Monday, November 16, 2009 would have been my best friend, Lilly Aramburo’s 26 birthday. Lily has been missing since June 2, 2007. Her plight has been featured on Nancy Grace and Americas Most Wanted.

Lily disappeared from the apartment of her heroin addicted boyfriend in the Dadeland area. Since then, her mother Lucely and I have launched an exhaustive search for her only to become disillusioned and extremely frustrated with the lack of effort of the Miami Dade Police Department.

Police failed to locate two witnesses that were present the night she disappeared. We’ve been working with private investigator Joe Carrillo and his team for over a year locating the two witnesses within days. A convicted killer has been identified by the investigators as a person of interest in her disappearance. After four meetings with the missing persons detectives, a convicted killer who served time for murder has yet to be interviewed even though identified and located by the private investigator. Why? Police refuse to answer the why.

Lily’s mother and I desperately need to bring attention to her disappearance and want answers from the Miami Dade Police Department. We’re both commencing a hunger strike Monday at 9:00 AM in front of the Miami Dade Government Center until we get answers.

Location: Government Center
111 NW 1 Street
Miami, Fl.

We’d like to thank all of you for supporting us in our fight to find Lily and for keeping Lily in your hearts and minds. PLEASE do not stop passing on this blog to all you know! You can also help support the search for Lily by donating to Lily’s reward fund or by purchasing a T-Shirt.

Anyone with information pertaining to the disappearance of Lily Aramburo is urged to contact Private Investigator Joe Carrillo at 305-926-3110 or call Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200.


Missing mother Lily Aramburo on America’s Most Wanted!

Young Mom Lily Aramburo Disappears


In the early hours of June 2, 2007,  Lilly Aramburo left her boyfriend’s apartment, never to be seen again. As her family and friends have told us, she would never leave her baby son behind on her own free will.

Now, they have turned to America’s Most Wanted for help.

Lilly is described as friendly and always willing to listen and help a friend in need. A blog has been started, called Justice in Miami, to raise awareness about her case.

At 22, she was not without problems. She struggled with drugs, and may have found herself in a situation where people she knew did her harm.

Private Eye Working To Find Lilly

Lilly’s friends are desperate for answers in her disappearance.

The quiet residential street in Miami where she lived turned different at night, and people are afraid to talk about what they see and what they know.

Law enforcement sources say they know the last place she was seen alive, a private home on the street.

Those who love her have great concerns about her not being alive when she left that house.

A South Florida private investigator, Joe Carrillo, has received some great tips that have been passed on to Miami law enforcement.

Those that know Lilly think some people might be afraid to come forward.  Lilly’s loved ones want to know what may have been done to her.

Join us May 31st at 6pm in Coconut Grove!

Sunday May 31st, the South Florida community is invited to attend a candlelight vigil and silent march in memory of Lilly Aramburo, a young mother missing from Miami since 2007. Beginning at 6pm (Eastern time), Lilly Aramburo’s mother, Lucely will lead the crowd in a Justice for Lilly silent march in front of the house it is believed Lily may have lost her life.

The purpose of the silent demonstration is to grab the public’s attention for a short time on the two year anniversary of Lilly’s disappearance to make everyone aware that Lilly is still missing, and we are still looking for answers. There are many missing persons in South Florida and thousands across the country. We are remembering them and their families on this occasion. Anyone with a missing loved one is urged to attend the event and bring a photo or flyer to share.
What: Justice for Lily Candlelight Vigil and Silent March
When: Sunday May 31st at 6pm
Where: 3440 Percival Ave Coconut Grove, FL 33133 Map
Why: It’s been exactly 2 years since Lilly vanished. We need to find Lilly and we need the person(s) responsible to be brought to justice!
Family and friends will peacefully deliver a powerful message to Miami Dade Police Department that Lilly deserves justice, she deserves to be found. Lilly has not been forgotten by her family and friends and she shouldn’t be forgotten by the community where she lived. We’d like to see Miami Dade Police take meaningful action. Please show your support by joining Lilly’s family and friends as we hit the streets to demand JUSTICE FOR LILLY!

I realize few of you live in the Miami area, if you are unable to be there in person, we ask you to have Lilly in your thoughts and prayers while the vigil is going on. Please join us in spirit by lighting a candle for Lily (where ever you are). But to those who live in South Florida, we’d love the chance to see you in person to thank you for your support and commitment to finding Lilly these past 2 years. Although it will be a very hard day for all of us, spending it together will help us heal in a small way.

Visitors are welcome to bring a candle to light for Lilly but it is not required. Please RSVP via Facebook or if you’re on Twitter, you can RSVP here:

Media is encouraged to attend.


Lilly Aramburo, Gone but not Forgotten

Gone Without a Trace

The Disappearance of South Florida mother, Lucely “Lily” Aramburo has left her family and friends devastated. Although it’s been almost 2 years, since she’s been gone, she is not forgotten. Lilly was a very good friend. I miss her dearly.

Lilly Aramburo was 23 when she disappeared in June 2007.  She was last seen leaving her boyfriend’s condo, located in the Kendall area of Miami, Florida. Lilly’s boyfriend called her family the next evening at 2am after reporting her missing to Miami Dade Police. There are a lot of questions and very few answers.  Needless to say, Lilly’s case remains unsolved.

A candlelight vigil and silent march is being planned for the 2nd year anniversary of Lilly’s disappearance. It will take place at the end of May in Coconut Grove, Florida.  I will keep you updated as more info becomes available.

If you live in the South Florida area,  consider showing your support by attending the vigil and silent march.  If you use Facebook, please RSVP here.

Lilly Aramburo, Social Media and How YOU can Help!


“Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.” -Lamartine

We depend on social networking sites to assist in raising awareness for Lilly Aramburo and missing people.  If you have a loved one that’s missing, or if you’d like to help the cause, please join this Missing Persons group on Flickr. The group is focused on missing persons in the United States. Every member is encouraged to upload pictures of missing loved ones (as long as they disappeared within the US). This is a good idea for several aspects. Many people use Flickr and it’s a very effective way of raising awareness for the missing.

Please join us in the Missing Persons Friendfeed Room.  Members post links to pictures, articles, anything that has to do with missing people (Amber Alerts, abductions, kidnapping, runaways, etc).  If you’re a social media lover, be sure to join us on various sites across the web like Care2.com and Mixx.com. Please add Missing Lilly Aramburo as a friend on myspace and join her cause on Facebook. These are just a few things you can do to help.

This is one of my absolute favorite pictures of Lilly (above).  It’s how I remember my friend. Smiling, laughing, enjoying LIFE.  Since Lilly’s disappearance, on June 1, 2007, life has not been the same.  Lily’s mother lives in constant agony, waiting for news about her daughter. It’s not easy having to raise her grandson under such difficult circumstances . With each day, Lilly’s son (now 2 years old) slowly loses precious memories of his mother. He was only 9 months old, last time he was held in her warm and loving embrace. With every new picture, sadness tends to overcome me. And all I’m left with are questions. After all this time, I believe her little boy and family, deserve answers.  She absolutely did NOT willingly walk away from her son and her life.  She’d never allow so much time to pass without a phone call or checking in on her son. Someone took her from us. And many of us will not rest until she is brought back home and justice is served for Lilly Aramburo.

You can help by making a quick phone call to the US Attorney’s Office at 305-530-7679. It appears the US Attorneys office are the only ones who can properly investigate this case. Also, please continue sending emails to Governor Charlie Crist and media. It makes no sense that after all this time, not ONE article has been written about Lilly’s case in local newspapers like The Miami Herald or her picture displayed by local news channels. It’s not due to lack of effort, I testify to that.

Someone out there knows what happened to Lilly. I urge you to contact the detective or call the tip line at 305-471-TIPS.  You can remain anonymous if need be. Just pick up the phone and make the phone call, please! No matter how small a detail, no matter how silly you think it may be, your information could help solve this mystery. It’s been hell for Lilly’s family and friends. Please help bring Lilly back home. Immediately contact MDPD at 305-418-7245 or call the tip line at 305-471-TIPS, if you know anything at all about Lilly Aramburo’s disappearance.

Here’s a direct statement to her perpetrator, YOUR CONSCIOUS MUST BE KILLING YOU!

Please keep Lilly Aramburo and her family in your prayers.


Birthday Vigil for Lilly Aramburo


Sunday, November 16th would have been Lilly Aramburo’s 25th birthday. More than 16 months have passed since her family and friends last saw Lilly’s sweet smile or listened to her kind words. Her absence is felt every day by many who knew and loved her.

Justice In Miami is inviting everyone to join Lilly’s friends and family this Sunday for a Birthday Vigil in Lilly’s honor in Miami Beach. The gathering will take place on 80th Street & Collins Ave to celebrate Lilly’s life. Bring a candle and a prayer, together we can start the healing process.

Sadly, life hasn’t been the same since June 2, 2007. It won’t ever be back to normal until the truth about what happened comes to light and the persons who did this are brought to justice.

WHEN: SUNDAY, November 16th, 2008
WHERE: 80th Street and Collins Ave in Miami Beach, FL
By the water…
If you’re interested in attending, please let me know and I’ll make sure to keep you updated. If you cannot make it, (wherever you are) please light a candle and dedicate a prayer for Lilly.

Let Lilly’s name not be forgotten.

Thank you for your continued support.

Missing Mother – Viriadiana Maldonado

Help find this young mother. Viriadiana has been missing since October from North Charleston, South Carolina.

The family of a missing woman hopes a $1,000 dollar reward can help bring her back. Viridiana Maldonado’s, 21, has been missing since October.

She was last seen at her North Charleston apartment.

Police said at a news conference Thursday morning they don’t think she left home on her own free will. They’re hoping someone will know where she is.

Maldonado’s sister says she’s been getting text messages from her sister that don’t sound right. A translator for the sister of Maldonado says, “The way she sent those text messages is not her … She never asked for her children, you know, like text messaging: ‘How are the kids doing?’ or ‘Take care of them.’ Because if she left, she would know the kids had to stay with somebody. I don’t think the mother would just leave the kids not knowing what’s going to happen to them.”

If you know where to find Viridiana Maldonado, call the Comen Detective Agency at 571-2667.

A $1,000 reward is being offered if she is found by midnight on January 10th.
