Police still searching for missing Lubbock teen

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. Lubbock Police Officers were seen on horseback searching a field off of FM 2641 just a few miles west of Interstate 27.

Sources told KCBD police were searching the fields because of a tip saying the body of missing teen Mark Ysasaga could possibly be found there.

For several hours the officers combed through the fields on horseback for any evidence of the 15-year-old who went missing back on June 14th. Police say just because they were searching on horseback it does not mean they presume the teen to be dead, but that when they receive tips they have to check them out.

According to Anna Cuevas, Mark's mother, police told her Tuesday evening that nothing was found in the fields. "That gave the whole family relief that there is still hope he's going to be coming home soon," said Anna.

Anna says the search for her son will continue until he is found and brought home safe. She says he was last seen early on June 14th around 2 a.m. when Mark was headed to a friend's home near 27th and Flint.

Just days later on June 17th, Anna filed a missing person's report. Since then more than 12,000 flyers have been handed out.

"I just want help to bring him home," cried Mark's 11-year-old brother Michael Cuevas. "I just want him back. He's my only big brother."

As the tears ran down Michael's face, his mother Anna held him close and talked about how much they missed Mark. "I miss the little jokes...things like that. I just miss his voice," said Anna.

Anna says she is in the works of putting together a search party. Until then they will continue to wear shirts with his information on it, and pass out flyers.

Mark is described as 5'7" and weighs about 145 pounds. If you have any information you are asked to call Crimeline at 741-1000.

Coming up tonight at ten on KCBD NewsChannel 11 you'll hear from Anna and her continued efforts to bring her son home.
