The Searchers: Mexican women who look for the dead

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

The women who form part of The Searchers are well aware of the statistics and in many cases what they are searching for is certainty.

Retired teacher Mirna Nereyda Medina (in the foreground) founded the group, called The Searchers of El Fuerte, in July 2014 after her son Roberto disappeared in the village of the same name in northern Mexico. Photojournalist Alejandro Cegarra has documented her search and those of some 30 women who have since joined her.
