LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This coming Friday will mark one month since 15-year old Mark Anthony Ysasaga went missing. His family reported him missing on the 17th of June. Now they continue their efforts to try and bring him home.

Ysasaga's mother and father, Anna and Michael Cuevas, say with the help of friends and family they've passed out over 12,000 flyers to anyone who will take them. They've held numerous candlelight vigils and carwashes to spread the word.

"We've gone everywhere throughout Lubbock. We did 4th on Broadway, Critterfest, the mall, flea markets - so were trying to hit every major crowd in town," Anna Cuevas said.

They're coordinating the effort with Internet and social media sites. Ysasaga's missing page on Facebook has over 1,500 likes. Their Twitter account, @BringMarkHome, provides updates about the search effort. But although there have been numerous tips, none of them have resulted in a lead.

"We've heard that he might be in San Antonio, we've heard Austin, we've heard Oklahoma, Ohio - it's just some of the leads they're trying to follow, but so far nothing," Michael Ysasaga said.

Last week, the Lubbock Police Department held a press conference discussing the search effort and classifying Ysasaga as a missing juvenile. LPD says they have ten investigators and two supervisors working full time to bring Mark home.

"They're interviewing us, talking to us more, and everything. Going back to the day of his disappearance," Anna Cuevas said.

Now, this mother and father just hope and pray their son will come home soon, safe and sound.

"If Anthony sees this... we love you and we want you home"

Mark Anthony Ysasaga was last seen on 27th street wearing a white polo and red basketball shorts. He's 5'7 and 145 pounds. If you have any information regarding his disappearance please contact Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.

Crime Line of Lubbock is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to Mark's return.
