Victoria Police say cracking a missing person case is tough but putting the puzzle pieces together start with information from family, friends and the community. VPD say they have interviewed numerous individuals concerning the disappearance of Antonio Vela Jr. Vela, 36, has been missing since Thursday June 15th. He was last seen at Sports bar and his car was located on Venglar Road in Inez on Friday June 16th. VPD and The Department of Public Safety conducted a physical search of the rural area that the car was found and now have physical items for evidence.

We do have information that points to being suspicious and foul play was probably involved however we don’t have enough information that we can say a crime has been committed,” JJ Craig said.

JJ Craig, VPD Chief of Police, says the department has a couple of detectives working full time on the case, but they are urging any one with information to come forward to help figure out what happened to Antonio Vela Jr.
