No update in Bluffton woman's disappearance, family say

info@islandpacket.comDecember 20, 2013 

There have been no new developments in the case of a Bluffton woman who went missing three weeks ago, her daughter Dayra Manrique said Friday.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has said it suspects foul play in the disappearance of 47-year-old Margarita Gonzalez-Almazan, last seen Nov. 30 in Bluffton. Deputies named her boyfriend, 40-year-old Osman Galicia-Escobedo, a person of interest after Savannah authorities found his car abandoned near Keller's Flea Market on the city's west side.

The Sheriff's Office has not released additional details since Dec. 11 , citing its ongoing investigation. Attempts Friday to reach Sheriff P.J. Tanner were unsuccessful.
