Parents 'desperately worried' over 23-year-old woman missing in Guatemala

Catherine Shaw, from Witney, Oxfordshire, who has been travelling since September past year and has previously visited Mexico and California in the United States, was reported missing on March 5.

In a statement released through the trust, which is supporting the family, her parents said they have been "desperately worried" since her disappearance.

Catherine left Britain last September and was travelling for two weeks in Guatemala, having previously been in Mexico and California.

The family of a British woman who disappeared in Guatemala this week have said that they are very concerned for her safety.

Her father, who has travelled to Guatemala to join the search, added: "Your friends, your family are all really anxious about you".

The hotel said Catherine had been recorded on CCTV leaving at 1.37am on Tuesday carrying a musical instrument.

Her parents also made a video appeal, which was posted on the charity's social media page.

"She has always been really good about keeping in touch and informing us of her whereabouts and activities", they said.


"So this is unusual behaviour which gives us great concern for her safety".

He added: "Your friends, your family are all really anxious about you, please come home sweetheart".

Over the weekend Guatemalan police, locals and Britons in the country went to the peak of the Indian Nose hiking trail, where the puppy was found.

She had been staying in a hotel, but her female room-mate woke up to find she had gone without taking her passport, belongings or money.

The Foreign Office confirmed they are in contact with authorities in the country.

The trust said that at this point she had a puppy with her but no other possessions.

Shaw's mother urged her daughter to get in touch with friends and family if she is alive.

"We would like to speak to any of these travellers to both rule them out and to ask if they have seen or spoken to Catherine on their travels".
