‘The Search‘ is yet another Netflix series that is based on a true story. The Spanish language series adds another feather to the streaming giant’s cap when it comes to true-story productions as it manages to consistently shock viewers. However, ‘The Search’ is different than other true-crime productions. It surprises viewers by exposing high levels of corruption in public offices of Mexico.
‘The Seach’ revolves around the disappearance and subsequent death of a four-year-old girl named Paulette Gebara Farah. One of the major, gray characters in ‘The Search’ is Amanda de la Rosa. This character is essayed by Diana Bovio. Several viewers would have wondered who she is and what she is up to currently.
Who is Amanda de la Rosa?
Amanda de la Rosa was an extremely close friend of Lizette, Paulette’s mother.

She started to be accused by the authorities of concealing the truth when it was thought that Lizette was responsible for Paulette’s disappearance.
Amanda de la Rosa is often referred to by her nickname “La China.” According to local sources, she became friends with Lizette when the two had been classmates in elementary and high school.
