Authorities Looking for Missing Plainview Woman

More than 24 hours after Sophia Alaniz's disappearance, her family passed out 500 missing person posters around Plainview and Lubbock. Barbara Croswell did not think she would be passing out information about her missing cousin.

All day, she passed out signs at parking lots, posted signs at every place she could think just so people would be aware Sophia is somewhere out there.

"I know she left him a couple of weeks ago and was staying with a good friend. He found out where she was," said Barbara.

Marcus Barrios dated Sophia for six months. She left him when she found out his sorted past. "The last run-in was a stalking charge. He had a history of assaults against ex-girlfriends," said Constable Mark Mull.

Sophia hid from Barrios but at 1:15 Monday morning. She answered the door and it was Barrios. "He knocked on the front door. She opened it, he grabbed her and they had an altercation," said Mull.

Mull says he believes Barrios is a member of the Texas Syndicate Prison gang. He has a tattoo of the symbol on his right middle finger. "We want him to know we're not going to give up. We're going to do anything to get his picture and her picture out there."

Hale County Crimestoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to Barrio's arrest. The two were last seen driving away in a 2002 Chevy Malibu like this one with the license plate number H17-ZRJ .

The car also has a Longhorn sticker on the back window. If you have any information, call the Texas Rangers at (806) 296-2724. Because of Barrios's history of violence and gang relations, Hale County called the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Marshals to assist.
