Warrior Hounds: The Mexican women searching for their disappeared

Women using their noses, simple tools to find missing loved ones, discouraged by what they say is official indifference.

Mexico says more than 61,000 people have gone missing as rising violence grips the country, a figure 50 percent higher than the government’s previous estimate.

Faced with what they say is official indifference, a group of women has banded together to use every rudimentary tool at their disposal to find the bodies of their missing loved ones.
