Sunday, May 18, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A teenage Belizean girl who was recued by Mexican police earlier this month in Carrillo Puerto, Mexico is now one step closer to returning to Belize.

The 16 years old girl says she is the victim of physical and verbal abuse and reports in the Mexican media at the time of her rescue, said that she told authorities that she was being kept against her will and was in Mexico illegally.

In a report published on Saturday in the Diario de Quintana Roo, it was noted that the teenage girl, said to be from August Pine Ridge village, has been handed over to the National Migration Institute of Mexico which is now tasked with resturning the teen to Belize.

The girl told Mexican authorities that she had been in Mexico illegally for the last seven months and when she was rescued on May second told the police that the man she was with was abusing her.

That man, whose picture is accompanying this story, has been identified as 53 year old Miguel Angel Manzanero Cocom.

When police intercepted Cocom and the girl in a car, authorities said it appeared that they were arguing.

According to Diario de Quintana Roo, that argument, based on what the teenage girl told Mexican authorities is because Cocom was trying to force her out of his vehicle and tried to make her go have sex with men at a roadside motel.

The Mexican newspaper says that all the teenager wants now is to return to Belize.

And if all goes as planned, that homecoming should take place this week.
