The last time that family members had contact with O'Neil Patrick McGean, who is 52 years old, was last Tuesday night October 25, when he told them during a telephone conversation, that he was going to visit a friend in Hotel Punta Pacifico.
After that phone conversation they don't know anything about him, and more family members arrived to Sinaloa to reinforce the search.
His vehicle was found Saturday morning in Avenue Camaron Sabalo, by a known restaurant, which people that live around the area reported that the vehicle has been there for several days.
Family members reported that he was owner of a local business and that he constantly maintained communications with him and that he would never left his pets unattended. They also assured that he didn't have any history of drug use and that he does not have any links to criminals.
“We worry about his lack of communication and that we haven't received any news, because time factor is critical. O'Neil has tremendous love for Mazatlán and his wonderful people, who he considers his second family and also considers Mexico his second home”, commented one of the family members.
