Football team shows support for Ysasaga family

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It's been eight months, but one Lubbock mother is continuing the fight to find her son.

On Saturday afternoon, Anna Ysasaga, with help from the West Texas Outlaws football team, hosted child safety and recovery day.

The event offered tips for parents along with free child identification.

Anna recently formed the Mark Anthony Ysasaga Foundation. She hopes to spread awareness about missing children and to offer help for families that are going through similar situations.

"You don't have six months to look for your child. I'm already hitting the eight-month mark and I still haven't found him. So to have somebody close, maybe we can find that child in the first 24 to 48 hours, rather than waiting months and months for people to come and help," Anna said.

Football was Mark Ysasaga's favorite sport, so the team wanted to do something special to honor him.

"We were all touched by it, so we decided to wear this bandana with his number on it."

Ysasaga was last seen on June 14th.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, please contact Crime Line at 741-1000.
