TV Show Host Goes Missing, Then Turns Up Safe in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA – The teenage host of a show on the Honduran Catholic television channel Suyapa TV who went missing last week has turned up safe and sound, the head of the Criminal Investigation Directorate, or DNIC, Leandro Osorio, said on Sunday.

Yoselyn Paola Paz disappeared on Friday, the director of one of the station’s news shows, Carlos Ramos, had said.

“She is in good health. We hope that she will return home soon,” Osorio told reporters, adding that the 18-year-old Suyapa TV host had not been kidnapped.

Paz was found in a car parked in a mall in the southern part of Tegucigalpa.

Osorio said that the young woman decided to leave home, evidently after an argument with her father, Ricardo Paz, and this was confirmed by Yoselyn to HRN radio in the capital.

“I want to clarify that I’m fine, safe and sound. Nobody has kidnapped me, nobody is holding me hostage,” said the young woman by telephone, adding that her disappearance had resulted from “personal reasons.”

The Paz was seen for the last time on Friday night at her home in Hato de Enmedio, a neighborhood in east Tegucigalpa, and her whereabouts was unknown, Suyapa TV said in a statement.

The young woman left home to purchase some items at a store and “disappeared in a strange manner,” co-workers said.

“Several search teams” were organized to look for the missing television show host, Osorio had told reporters.

Paz is a journalism student at the National Autonomous University of Honduras, or UNAH.

Forty-eight journalists and media executives have been murdered in Honduras since November 2003, Human Rights Commissioner’s Office figures show.

Honduras, considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists, registered 5,802 murders in 2014, or an average of 15.9 per day.
