A legal battle has ensued as the family of a young pregnant woman, who vanished almost half a century ago, takes the New York Police Department (NYPD) to court in their relentless pursuit of answers, Your Content has learned.

Milagros Perez Peralta, aged 22 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen leaving an unemployment office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on August 30, 1976.

According to court documents filed by her brother, Rafael Perez, witnesses reported that she was forced into a vehicle.

Immediately after her disappearance, Perez’s family reached out to the authorities, contacting both the 90th Precinct in close proximity to the incident and the 114th Precinct where she resided, recounted Perez.

Despite an investigation conducted at the time, Peralta’s case eventually turned cold, leaving her family in a perpetual state of uncertainty.

In April 2022, Rafael Perez filed a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request with the NYPD, seeking access to any relevant documents related to his sister’s case.

According to the legal filing, “Since 1976, Ms. Perez’s family has tirelessly pursued the search for their missing loved one.”

However, after a period of nine months, the NYPD reportedly closed Perez’s FOIL request, inexplicably stating that no records pertaining to the case were available.

Discontented with this response, Perez now seeks judicial intervention to compel the NYPD to provide the requested records or provide a satisfactory explanation for their absence, according to New York Post.
