Vanessa Guillen vanished without a trace April 22 from Fort Hood, where the U.S. Army private was working as a small arms and artillery repairer for the 3rd Cavalry Regiment.
Nearly two months later, actor Salma Hayek is lending her voice to the chorus of people desperate to find the missing 20-year-old Houston native.
On Saturday, Hayek posted a photo on her Instagram page in which she holds up a cardboard sign with Guillen’s Army portrait.
“Bring back Vanessa,” the sign reads, in both English and Spanish.
The message continues, “Vanessa, no estás sola. Estános todes contigo y no pararemos hasta que regreses.”
Hayek’s words translate to, “Vanessa, you are not alone. We are all with you and we will not stop until you return.”
In a previous post, Hayek wrote that Guillen’s mother, Gloria Guillen, has said her daughter complained of sexual harassment by a sergeant on the base.
“When her mother advised her to report him, Vanessa said other women had reported him and they were not believed,” Hayek wrote. “Vanessa and Gloria, I believe you and I pledge to put Vanessa’s photo on my stories every day until she is found.”
A special mass was held for Guillen Saturday night at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Killeen, according to KWTX in Waco. It was held entirely in Spanish for Guillen’s family.
