|Ebert Hidalgo Cruz with his wife and children in happier times|
Ebert was seen five days later on August 8th for ten minutes by his family. They were threatened and told not to speak of what they saw, but they refused to be silent. They saw their father with a blood stain on his shirt, injuries to his head, his hands and feet trembled, and he teared up. He told them to remain united and said: "Children, I will endure everything they are doing to me." Ferrer has still not been seen. Ebert's daughter Haydeé Hidalgo posted a video denouncing, in Spanish, the torture of her dad.
