    Pauline del Mundo (59) missing from DFW airport since 9/14/19

    https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2019/09/...ly-needs-help/

    A 59-year-old transgender woman from Florida, Pauline del Mundo, has reportedly gone missing during a layover at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport while waiting for a connecting flight from Tampa to Cozumel, Mexico for a 10-day vacation.

    Mundo?s sisters say that she called them during her layover sounding uncharacteristically ?incoherent? and ?depressed.? Mundo said she no longer wanted to go to Cozumel and needed an airline ticket back to Tampa. That was the last time anyone heard from her ? her phone has since gone dead.

    Her family prays the same can?t be said of her.

    Mundo never checked into her flight to Mexico nor into her Cozumel hotel. Her sister, Lilia Acebron, told Newsweek that Mundo ?had recently been dealing with pain from a rotator cuff injury, which impacted her ability to work as a nurse in the Tampa area.?

    ?She?s a hard-working woman, she always worked overtime,? Acebron told WTSP 10 News. ?But she was still having some pain, some limitation of movement, so she considered herself disabled and I think that?s why she started getting depressed.?

    The Filipina-American woman is 5 feet 6 inches tall, has long brown hair, speaks with an accent and goes by the names Paulina, Paulino, Paula or Pauline. Anyone with information on her whereabouts should call DFW Airport Detective Sgt. Karl Ross at 972-391-7221.

    Mundo?s sisters worry that she may have fallen victim to the recent string of murders targeting trans women in the Dallas area.

    Since 2015, Dallas has had eight documented murders of trans women in Dallas including 26-year-old Chynal Lindsey in June 2019, 22-year-old Muhlaysia Booker in May 2019, an unidentified 26-year-old stabbing victim in April 2019, 29-year-old Brittany White in Oct. 2018, 39-year-old Nicole Hall and 26-year-old Carla Flores-Pavon both found in May 2018, another unidentified victim in July 2017 and 22-year-old Shade Schuler in July 2015.

    One month and two days after first losing contact with her, the family of transgender woman Pauline (Paula) DelMundo continues to search for their sister, and they are “pleading desperately” for the public’s help in finding her.

    Pauline DelMundo, who lives in Tampa, Fla., was on her way to Cozumel, Mexico, via American Airlines on Saturday, Sept. 14, when she disappeared. But she called one of her sisters shortly before 6 p.m., that day, during a layover at DFW International Airport, saying that she had changed her mind and wanted to go back to Tampa and asking her sister to help her get a ticket back to Tampa.

    That was the last time anyone in her family has heard from her.

    Pauline’s sister, Yolanda DelMundo, told Dallas Voice by email today (Wednesday, Oct. 16), that Pauline had planned a 10-day holiday in Cozumel at the Iberostar Hotel. Hotel officials told the family Pauline never checked into the hotel, and American Airlines records indicate that she did not board the flight to Cozumel, nor has she boarded a flight back to Tampa.

    Video footage of Pauline at DFW International Airport showed her carrying a yellow Nautica trolley bag, Yolanda told Dallas Voice. But the video shows her apparently deliberately leaving the bag unattended and walking away with just her wallet. The bag, however, has never been found.

    Detectives with the DFW International Airport police department and agents with the Dallas office of the FBI have combined their efforts in searching for Pauline, according to Yolanda, who said that officers had used trained dogs to search the areas of the airport where Pauline had been seen. The dogs, however, have found no trace of her there.

    Investigators also checked routes Pauline might have taken to leave the airport in via a ride-share service or a bus, still finding nothing. Investigators have been unable, however, to rule out the possibility that Pauline left the airport in a taxi cab, her sister said.

    Also according to Yolanda, Pauline’s T-Mobile cell phone has been inactive since her disappearance, and there has been no activity on her bank account.

    Pauline DelMundo has been added to the national missing persons database.

    Friends and family are “baffled by” and “anxious over” her mysterious disappearance, Yolanda DelMundo said, and fear for welfare and her safety. She said the search will continue until she is found.

    Yolanda DelMundo asked that anyone with any information or who can “offer any form of assistance” please call the DFW International Airport police department at 972-391-7221 or 972-973-3553, or the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Tampa at 813-247-8000.
