Former Columbian beauty queen, singer and actress Ania Acosta who went missing 10 months ago has been found dead. 

Acosta, who was 43, was buried on Wednesday, Columbia’s embassy in Mexico announced in a social media post. 

They also revealed Acosta was a ‘victim of trafficking and femicide’.

‘It is with pain that we inform you that Ania Margoth Acosta was buried today,’ the post began. 

‘A Colombian victim of trafficking and a femicide, but also of abandonment by the State. Today we failed a family, to whom we apologise, and we ask the judicial authorities for a prompt investigation.’ 

According to Colombian outlet Noticia Caracol News, her loved ones last heard from her properly on June 21, 2023.

They told the publication she was ‘beautiful and intelligent’.

After settling in Mexico in 2021, Acosta was reported missing two years later on June 28, 2023.

A family member told the outlet – under the condition of anonymity – that authorities shared with them a video of the moment Acosta was forced inside a car.

On learning about mother-of-one Acosta going missing, human rights organisation IDHEAS claim they ‘pressured the Colombian Embassy to act in accordance with international protocols, without response’.

Acosta won a beauty pageant in Chocó in 2001 and became Miss Colombia,before turning her talents to acting, appearing in the Colombian network series La Viuda Negra (The Black Widow), Las Detectivas y El Víctor (The Detectives and Víctor) and El Comandante (The Commander).

Mexican outlet El Pais report Acosta’s body was found in an illicit grave – with ten other bodies – in Michoacán three months ago.

The publication report that on International Women’s Day authorities informed Acosta’s brothers her body had been found.
