PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

A Plainview family is desperate to find their loved one who's been missing for two weeks. 26-year-old Andrew Pena disappeared on April 6.

Plainview police are actively searching for the father of two. He was last seen in Plainview, about to catch a bus to Amarillo.

Andrew was living with his father, Angel Pena, before he went missing.Angel says he continues to call his son's phone, but it goes straight to voicemail.

He says his mind has been racing ever since.

"I haven't had very much sleep," Angel said. "Just a lot of crazy things that go through your mind. You wonder if he could be out there hurt, or I really don't know."

Angel is not the only one asking questions, though. so is his four-year-old son, Tyler.

"He has asked for his Dad, and I don't know what to tell him."

Maria Zaragoza is Tyler's mother. She says it's strange Andrew has not tried to contact her or her son.

"It's very important for me to find him because that's my son's dad, and I wouldn't want my son to grow up without his dad," she said.

Angel says he just wants him to return home.

"I would just like to say Andrew, if you're seeing this, please contact us so that we know you're okay. We do have a lot of people praying for him, and I want to thank all the people praying for him and all the people who are also looking for him. Thank you very much."

Anyone with information about Andrew's whereabouts can contact Plainview police at 296-1111.
