Ricardo had just returned from a trip and had arrived at his home from the airport before setting off to meet his friend, Fernanda Hoffmann. During his journey to Hoffmann’s residence, the two friends exchanged text messages. However, Ricardo never reached his intended destination, leaving Hoffmann deeply worried about his well-being.

In response to Ricardo’s puzzling disappearance, Hoffmann has launched a social media campaign, urging anyone with information to come forward and assist in the search.

Ricardo’s concerned family members have travelled from Santa Catarina State to São Paulo to participate in the search efforts actively. As part of the investigation, the geolocation of Ricardo’s phone was traced to a favela (a Brazilian slum). Police have been dispatched to the area, but as of now, there is no confirmation as to whether the phone is still in Ricardo’s possession or if it was stolen and taken to that community.
