Morales Rojas communicated daily with her family in El Salvador. A video was sent to her sister to let her know that she was working at Logan Airport in Boston.

“It is something that hurts us as a family,” said Alicia Morales, her sister.

The last time Alicia spoke to her sister was on Nov. 26, the same day she disappeared after getting into a silver van, which took her from East Boston - where she lived - to Cambridge. It was around 9:30 p.m.

Police say that the last time they saw her she was getting out of a vehicle on Allston Street in Somerville. She was wearing a black shirt and pants, a gray sweater and was carrying a bag.

Morales Rojas case has the Salvadoran community very moved. Everyone is praying for this mother to return to her family.

The consulate of El Salvador, the state police and the Middlesex prosecutor's office are working on this case.

The Boston Police Department is asking anyone with information to dial 911 or call 617-343-4328.
