Search intensifies for Lubbock missing teen Mark Ysasaga

The search for missing Lubbock teen Mark Anthony Ysasaga has intensified with a new private investigator joining the search efforts. Fifteen year old Mark has been missing for almost three months since he was last seen going to a friend's home on June 14th.

State licensed investigator Chuck Foreman was contacted by Mark's family Wednesday night, and just 24 hours into the investigation he says he's already gotten several anonymous calls with information. "We think he's outside of the Lubbock area. We're going to look all the information and track it down to the source. Hopefully we get lucky and find some information," Foreman said.

Since Mark's disappearance countless tears have been shed, thousands of fliers passed out, and hour after hour has been spent searching for the missing teen. Mark's family is hoping the Foreman will add a fresh pair of eyes and a new approach to the investigation.

"We're trying to go after a little bit of a different strategy because I'm not law enforcement. We're trying to reach out to a certain segment of people who don't feel comfortable talking about Mark with law enforcement, but perhaps they'll feel comfortable talking to me," Foreman said.

Foreman says he will begin looking into the 48 hours before Mark went missing to hopefully find leads to bring Mark home. If you have any information you can contact Foreman at 512-644-9856.

People with information can also call Crime Line and stay anonymous. That number is 806-741-1000.

Mark Ysasaga was last seen on 27th street wearing a white polo and red basketball shorts. He's 5'7 and 145 pounds.
