A heavily pregnant teenager and her boyfriend were found dead in a car only days after they went missing.
Savanah Nicole Soto, 18, and her boyfriend Matthew Guerra, 22, were reportedly found inside a car on the northwest side of the Colinas Medical Apartments in San Antonio after they disappeared on December 23.
Police said that the teen was last seen at her apartment in Leon Valley and was described to be in ‘imminent danger.’
She was reportedly scheduled to be induced on Saturday but the heavily pregnant teen failed to show up at the hospital.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told reporters that the case is ‘very complex and perplexing.’
Police did not know who found the car and did not mention if the baby had survived.
Soto’s heartbroken mother, Gloria Cordova, previously told KENS5: “Savanah was so, so happy because she was going to be a mommy. It breaks my heart.
“Please come home. No one’s going to judge you. No one is going to say anything. I just want you to be home.”
Cordova said that she last heard from her daughter on December 22 but she could no longer reach her when she tried to check on the teen on Saturday.
“I went by there and knocked and knocked and knocked and she wasn’t answering,” Cordova expressed.
“We got to the hospital. They said she wasn’t there.”
The mother said that her daughter was ready to welcome her baby and even had the nursery done. She also planned to have her mom in the delivery room.
“We don’t even know what happened,” Cordova continued. “They said it could be anything.”
She also took to social media and shared a photo of Soto, writing: “I’m worried about her safety she is with her boyfriend who is no good.”
Thousands of people joined the ‘Find Savannah Soto Discussion’ group as many searched for clues that could lead to the teen’s disappearance.
Guerra’s mother also spoke out to defend her son, saying: “I know my son and he wouldn’t do anything to hurt her.”
