Victoria Crime Stoppers needs our help. The case of missing 38-year-old Victorian Antonio Vela Jr. remains open and unsolved. Victoria authorities are requesting information surrounding the disappearance of Vela Jr which happened back in 2017.

The holidays can be a very hard time of year for a family who is missing a loved one and Victoria Crime Stoppers is trying to spread the word again to remind the public they are still seeking answers and want to help bring some peace to Vela Jr's family.

Back in June of 2015, Antonio Vela Jr. was last seen at a local Victoria business. The following day Vela Jr's vehicle was found just outside the city limits of Victoria and no one has seen him since. Antonio is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds.

Vela's sister told Crossroadstoday.com that “Don’t forget him, don’t forget that he’s still out there, keep spreading the word, that he needs to be home, that he’s missing, and he needs to be brought home."

Anyone who recognizes the man in the photo or has any additional information you are asked to please call Victoria Crime Stoppers at 361-572-4200. All tips are anonymous. Any information leading to Vela's whereabouts could earn a responsible citizen a cash reward from Crime Stoppers.
