Family seeks answers after woman disappears in Fort Lauderdale

A family in Broward County is concerned about the safety of a lady who has been missing for many days.

According to investigators from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Missing Persons Unit, 39-year-old Mimose Dulcio was last seen around the 400 block of Northwest 30th Avenue on Thursday at about 5:30 p.m.

Her siblings informed the media that they are concerned about her safety since it is not in her character to disappear without notice.

Seminta Dulcio, Mimose’s sister, said, “She doesn’t simply go away and never return.” “She is not like that. This is a dire scenario.”

She said that she last talked with Mimose on Thursday afternoon last week. Mimose allegedly texted her stepdaughter at 5:30 a.m. on Friday, but her stepdaughter then stopped responding.

Her sister informed the reporters that she contacted Mimose many times on Friday morning, but she did not respond or return her calls; so, she went to her residence to check on her.

“I forcefully enter her residence, but she is not there. We have searched everywhere, but we cannot locate Mimose “Seminta Dulcio stated.

The family discovered that not only was Mimose gone, but so were some of her valuables. They also saw blood flecks and breaks on the television.

“Two of her phones were smashed, twisted, and shattered, and it’s not like her to abandon any of her gadgets in light of what she’s now experiencing “Seminta Dulcio stated.

According to Mimose’s relatives, her estranged husband, Jose Luis Pacheco, was the last person to see her alive. As Mimose filed for divorce, the couple was living in separate rooms of the home.

Friday morning, Simenta Dulcio claimed she briefly saw him at his residence.

“He opened the door and informed me that Mimi was not home and that the two large dogs had just left.” “She said,

Simenta Dulcio said that BSO had previously been to the residence two or three times, and that Mimose attempted to get an emergency restraining order against Pacheco on Thursday morning, but the courts were closed because of Hurricane Nicole.

The siblings said that Pacheco had been absent since Friday afternoon for 10 hours and that no one had been able to contact him for some time.

“Something is wrong. Everyone must understand, “Enel Dulcio, Dulcio’s brother, stated so.

According to Mimose’s relatives, investigators have stolen Pacheco’s phone and vehicle.

At this time, the Broward Sheriff’s Office has not said if Pacheco is a suspect or person of interest.

Enel Dulcio told NBC 6: “I have no idea whether he is a subject of interest.” “Why is he not a suspect if he is not a suspect? This is the only individual we are aware of who saw her or who was there while she was present.”

Mimose has black hair, and brown eyes, is around 5 feet 5 inches tall, and weighs 170 pounds. Since 2019, she has worked as an administrative assistant for the city of Fort Lauderdale.

Anyone with information on the location of Mimose is requested to contact BSO Detective Chris Blankenship at 954-321-4268 or the BSO non-emergency line at 954-764-4343.

Detectives also requested that anybody with information about the crime who wants to remain anonymous contact Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8493.
