Faith in the Jungle – Are These Leslie’s Footprints (13)?

Four siblings have been missing since their plane crashed in the Colombian jungle. Now footprints have been found that could be from one of the children.

die Siblings aged 13, nine, four and one A Cessna 206 propeller plane crashed in the Caquetá department in the south of the country on May 1. His mother, the pilot and a tribal leader died in the crash. While searching for the children, the soldiers found shoes, diapers, a baby bottle, a makeshift shelter made of leaves and twigs, and half-eaten fruit. However, due to the dense rain forest in the area, searching for missing persons is very difficult.

The children belong to an indigenous community and, according to media reports, were with their mother on their way to the capital Bogotá, where their father fled after repeated threats from armed groups. Their knowledge of the region may have helped them survive in the jungle after the crash.
