Monica De Leon, a U.S. citizen from San Mateo, California, is missing and was potentially kidnapped while walking her dog in Tepatitlan, near Guadalajara, Mexico, last month.

After taking her dog on a Mexican walk, a California woman went missing.

KTVU reported Monica De Leon (29), from San Mateo, California was walking her dog in Tepatitlan near Guadalajara on Nov. 29, when she was allegedly abducted by someone in a van.

According to the Facebook group “Help us Find Monica De Leon”, which has 630 members, De Leon was headed to a gym called Fit 4 LIFE in Tepatitlan near Guadalajara.

The group is asking members to call U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) and U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), on behalf of De Leon’s loved ones, and ask them to help with their search for the missing woman. It is not clear if De Leon was in Mexico visiting or living there.
