Searching for family.

OK, I know this is a long shot, but I am hoping the ADV community might be able to help.

I have a niece, Alicia Sixtos, who's father came to the US from Mexico. Alicia is in her teens, and has never been to Mexico, and she has family she has never met. Unfortunately her father has not kept in touch and we are having trouble tracking her family down. She has a grandfather and 2 aunts in Mexico. Her father originally came from the Acapulco area, and we believe that is where her grandfather still lives, although not sure the exact town. Her aunts are thought to be living in Tijuana, Baja. Like I said, I know it's a long shot, but you know how magic happens on ADV sometimes. Here are the names.

Alicia's Dad (here in US): Juan Sixtos Villalva
Grandfather, thought to be around Acapulco: Angel Sixtos Antunez
Aunts in Tijuana: Carmela Sixtos Villalva & Maria Sixtos Villalva

I know I'm hoping for a small miracle, but it could be as simple as someone picking up a phone book or asking around. Eventually I am hoping to take my niece to meet her family, but right now we are stuck.

A possible way to go is using the LDS Family History Library. You don't need to be a member of the church, as I am not.

I visited in person, but you may be able to find some useful information online.

any chance you have an area, or any other details about the family in TJ. I lived there for 8 years, my family is still there, and i'm going back there next weekend.

Other than the names, no.
