Lubbock community working to find Mark Ysasaga

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock community is banding together to help find missing teen Mark Ysasaga.

The independent Hispanic voter group "La Fuerza" or "The Force" hosted a rally at the Villa Hermosa Center near 52nd and Avenue Q around 6 p.m. Thursday.

The group wants people to do whatever they can to find Ysasaga; they even discussed creating an alert system similar to the Amber Alert.

Lubbock City Councilmen Todd Klein and Victor Hernandez were also there.

Hernandez says he can understand the family's pain.

"My wife and I have 4 children," Hernandez said. "Our youngest is 13 years old, so we can't just imagine what the parents are going through. That's why it strikes so close to home with us."

Hernandez suggests people text each other about anything they find or post it on their Facebook.

Ysasaga was last seen June 13th, while staying at a friend's home.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, police ask that you call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
