A 59-year old Pinay transwoman went missing in Texas, according to reports.

According to Pauline/Paula del Mundo’s family, she was last seen and heard at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport on September 14.


The real name of the Pinay transwoman was Paulino Norberto del Mundo Jr., a naturalized American citizen but of Filipino descent.

Her family said she has long brown hair and brown eyes too. She is 5’6 “tall, has a medium built body and lives in Tampa, Florida.

Del Mundo was supposed to go to the Iberostar Hotel in Cozumel, Me­xico. However, the staff of the said hotel said Del Mundo did not arrive at the hotel.


Del Mundo allegedly called his sister in California just before 6 p.m. (Dallas time) on September 14 asking for help to get a ticket back to Tampa because she had changed his mind and would not be staying in Cozumel.

Her sister, Lilia Acebron, told Newsweek that Mundo “had recently been dealing with pain from a rotator cuff injury, which impacted her ability to work as a nurse in the Tampa area.”

“She’s a hard-working woman, she always worked overtime,” Acebron told WTSP 10 News. “But she was still having some pain, some limitation of movement, so she considered herself disabled, and I think that’s why she started getting depressed.”

Del Mundo’s family was concerned about her mental state. They described her as being “on the verge of desperation.”

The family continues to ask for help from anyone who has seen Del Mundo. Anyone with information on her whereabouts should call DFW Airport Detective Sgt. Karl Ross at 972-391-7221.
