Allison’s family have left no stone unturned, the Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ) has been on the case from day one. The only trace of Allison was her prescription glasses found near where she was last seen.

All the family and investigators have had to go on are the calls Allison made, one to her mother to tell her she was on her way home and to her boyfriend, telling him she believed she was being followed.

The OIJ cannot be sure if the girl is alive or dead. Nor do they understand the motive for the disappearance.

Six months have gone by without a trace of Allison. But, like the family, the OIJ did not give up.

Wednesday night, at 9:00 pm, the OIJ confirmed the arrest of a man, a neighbor of Allison. A 28-year-old man identified by his last names Sánchez Ureña. His arrest took place at his home, a short distance from Allison’s family, where the missing girl lived.

The family had pointed the finger towards the now arrested man. The Cartago Deputy Prosecutor’s Office had directed searches on the man’s resident in March. Initially, the OIJ said that it “did not find any significant clues.”

The OIJ has been quiet on what changed, which led to the arrest Wednesday night.

After the news broke, Rodrigo Araya, lawyer for Allison Bonilla’s family, stated that they have little information about the events, only that they know the man was apprehended.

“We can confirm the arrest of alias Sukia as the possible perpetrator responsible for the disappearance of Allison (Bonilla),” he said, adding that they hope to have more information today, Thursday, September 3, when it is expected that both the OIJ and the Prosecutor’s Office will provide more details about the case.
