company Movistar (the biggest) told Monique that a sms message was sent from Raúl's number within the last 3 months. That makes for september 29, october, november untill yesterday december 29...... last SPOT contact was July 26 ...... pfffff
Only people in Argentina
can answer this. Given language and cultural differences, I would be very very cautious in interpreting any resulting communication.
Possibly maybe but not highly likely Movistar could track the signal IF the signal came from a Movistar mast
(Movistar (Telefonica) is a major company in the EU, e.g.). But it is highly likely that the signal was roamed (from another operator/network) and so Movistar may have no such information in their records.
Police forces are capable of getting such details cross border / cross operators, where technology allows. Given the delay, you may consider asking your local authorities to step in and start an official inquiry.
