The National Police of Colombia has found the body of a man who would match the characteristics of Silvano Cántaro Tolentino. The body was found on a bridge in the Mojarras district, in the municipality of Mercaderes in Cauca, in a place known as “La Quebrada”, by a group of residents. Colombian authorities are now trying to establish whether it is Silvano Cántaro Tolentino.
Let’s remember that there was no trace of Silvano since February 10. Now the prosecution would be trying to establish if it is Silvano. In the next few hours, the identity of the body found will be confirmed.
Noticias Caracol de Colombia reported as follows: “We report that, in the department of Cauca, more precisely in the village of Las Mojarras, in the municipality of Mercaderes, at the bottom of a vehicular bridge, there are bone remains that match the characteristics of a young Peruvian who appears in a video that circulates on social networks, “said General Pablo Ferney Ruiz, commander of the Metropolitan Police of the Aburrá Valley, which has jurisdiction in Medellín.
“The National Police send a message to the Peruvian people, especially to the relatives of the young Silvano Cántaro,” added the officer. The body, found in coordination with the Unit for the Search for Disappeared of the Prosecutor’s Office, is transferred to Forensic Medicine for the tests that allow to fully establish its identity.
