In the 1990s and early 2000s, there was a show in which Channel 5 (Canal 5) talked about people who have gone missing. On Mexican television, “Al servicio de la comunidad” was broadcasted. Its translation into English is, “At the Service of the Community”. 

One of those people whom the Mexican host briefed about was Selene Lopez. According to the police of Mexico, it was said a stalker was following Selene before her disappearance on April 14 at Álvaro Obregón. Furthermore, she belonged to a poor family. Due to scarce evidence, the police left the case on hold. Until now, she has not been received back by her family. 

Her name first received major prominence when a Youtuber, Yoshimitsu Caleon mentioned the Mexican girl Selene Lopez. As his videos went viral, many other YouTubers started pulling strings on the issue and distorted the information. Presently, everyone has made a new version of the missing girl’s abduction story. 

Some claim that she wasn’t abducted but left her family with someone else. Others think that her stalker who was stalking her was the real perpetrator. There’s also a suspicion that a woman who often engaged in prostitution took her away. As she went missing on the same day as her. 

This NextBot image has nothing to do with this broadcast but is rather a police sketch of Derrick Todd Lee, the Baton Rouge serial killer. Hence, the picture isn’t the actual photograph of Selene but a fake. 

Even though it is not her original image, this image is often associated with Selene Delgado because of the creepy videos that compare her with other faces (such as this man; Derrick Todd Lee). Another NextBot Chase mod for Garry’s Mod uses Selene’s face.
