Latest Missing Person Photos for
Missing Jairo Javier Sanchez
Sanchez, circa 1983
Missing Since 12/09/1983
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 05/30/1958 (62)
Age 25 years old
Height and Weight 5'5 - 5'6, 145 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A gold chain with a crucifix pendant.
Distinguishing Characteristics Hispanic male. Red hair, brown eyes. Sanchez had a red mustache and a medium-length beard at the time of his disappearance. He has substantial body hair and a half-inch scar below his left eye. He is a native of Barranquilla, Colombia, and grew up in Hialeah, Florida.
Sanchez had told his family he was importing television sets and other appliances to Colombia through the Bahamas in 1983, but he apparently was actually smuggling illegal drugs. He left Florida for the Bahamas on December 4 and last spoke to his family on December 9, the day of his disappearance.
Shortly after his family began searching for him, a family friend told them that if they continued the search, Sanchez's young daughter and other family members would be killed. His family took the threat seriously and did not renew their efforts to find Sanchez until 2005.
Authorities believe Weaver and Sanchez were murdered on Andros Island in the Bahamas, possibly by being pushed out of a plane. No one has been charged in their disappearances, however; their cases remain unsolved. Both Bahamian and Floridian authorities are investigating.
