    Sofia Jaurez (5) missing from Kennewick, WA since 2/4/2003

    A TikTok video may provide clues in the case of Sofia Juarez, a Kennewick girl who police believe was abducted near her home in 2003.

    In the clip, posted to the social media platform last month, a man in Sinaloa, Mexico, interviewed a woman who claimed she had been held captive and was attempting to reunite with her family.

    Her approximate age matches Juarez, and some viewers think the woman looks like an older version of the child.

    Commenters mentioned the Juarez case and flagged the Kennewick Police Department.

    ?We will follow up on every tip that comes through,? said Kennewick Police Lt. Aaron Clem. ?We need to do our due diligence to make sure that we have everything covered.?

    Investigators are talking with the man who shot the clip, a popular TikTok personality, and he is trying to help authorities locate the woman in the video, Clem said.

    ?I think it's just a matter of time before we're able to locate her and hopefully get her to provide us with a DNA sample so that we can compare that to a DNA sample that we have for Sofia,? he said.

    According to police, some relatives of the TikTok woman said she is not Sofia.

    ?If it's her, great, we get to bring Sofia home," said Clem. "If it's not her, then we can move on to other things and put our resources in other places."

    She looks like an adult version of the little girl, but I dont blame the family for being skeptical. s

    Damn! She does look like her. For sure! I'm hoping it's her and she's reunited.

    DNA results return for woman in Mexican TikTok video and missing Tri-Cities girl

    Kennewick police must refocus their efforts to find a girl who disappeared more than 19 years ago after a lead from a TikTok video turned out to be a bust. DNA test results returned this month show the woman in the video from Culiacan, Sinaloa, is not Sofia Juarez. Kennewick police posted the disappointing news on Thursday.

    Last year, in an impromptu interview with the social media personality, the Mexican woman said in Spanish that she had been kidnapped when she was a young child. She also said she didn’t like birthdays — Sofia Juarez disappeared a day before her 5th birthday — and was hoping her grandmother and grandfather would come find her.

    “The truth is, I don’t know where I’m from,” she said at the time. The woman said she was 22, but admitted she didn’t know her age for sure. Viewers were struck by the similarities between the woman and Sofia’s childhood photos and it drew national and international attention. Soon after, Kennewick police received dozens of tips on the missing person’s case.

    Police investigators contacted the social media personality about the video, and the woman’s relatives denied she was Sofia and said the woman was being treated at a rehabilitation center in Mexico. Investigators asked the rehabilitation center if they could arrange a DNA test but were told they would need a court order.

    “Police temporarily suspended the investigation so as to not interfere with the female’s treatment,” police said. “After a month, further attempts were made to try and interview the female in the rehabilitation center. Those efforts were unsuccessful.” With the help of the Mexican consul and the FBI, Kennewick police were able to find the Mexican woman after she was released from the facility. She voluntarily gave them a DNA sample. Investigators received the results on March 2, and discovered it wasn’t a match to Sofia.

    Me too. There have been several cases like this lately and none of them have turned out to be the missing person. There is still a lady down in Mexico that I haven't heard an update on, and that case is promising but it's sad that none of the others have panned out.

    Well that sucks. She definitely resembled her. I was hoping they'd be reunited. I guess it's good to rule people out at the same time.
