Miss Honduras, who was supposed to compete in the Miss World 2014 competition this week, and her sister are missing.

Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, and her sister, Sofia Trinidad, disappeared after they left a party together Thursday, The Telegraph said.

Police said the missing women were last seen getting into a car, and initially their disappearance wasn’t treated as a crime.

But now four people are under arrest, one of them Trinidad’s boyfriend, and another the owner of the home where the party was held, The Telegraph said.

The girls’ mother, Teresa de Jesus, spoke out for the safe return of her daughters. “Open your hearts and understand my pain,” she said, according to The Telegraph. “There is an all-powerful God that sees everything and I hope you set them free."

On her Miss World profile, Alvarado is described as a student living in Santa Barbara, Honduras. She said she wanted to be a diplomat for her country.

The Miss World contest is scheduled to start Thursday in England, the Telegraph said.

Many posted online in fear for the two young women, and some pointed to the danger of the Honduran city where the girls live. The Telegraph said 1,200 murders per year occur among the city’s almost 1 million inhabitants, giving it one of the highest murder rates in the world.

“Missing: Miss Honduras and her sister... Our country Is in a serious problem if the autorithies do not Design a Huge Security Strategy to protect every person ... Kid, Young, Adult, Man, Woman, Rich, Poor, business Owner, worker, residente, visitant... This Is so sad... I really hope the y aré fine and will be back to their Home soon. IT can happen to anyone,” one person posted on Facebook.
