    Here is more info:

    His 1987 Pontiac Firebird was found in the parking lot, along with his cell phone. A black bag he had with him was missing.

    Sheriff Ewell Hunt says they don't believe foul play is involved, but believes the disappearance is not in character for Ernandes.

    VA - Alex Ernandes, 19, Rocky Mount, 20 January 2011

    As the search for a Franklin County man continues, serious concern is setting in as authorities, family, and friends are all coming up empty handed in their search.

    Alex Ernandes, 19, has been missing for four days now. As time goes on the situation becomes even more urgent because family and friends are convinced that wherever the teen is, it isn't by his own will.

    Investigators are focusing on surveillance video from businesses around Walmart, where Ernandes locked car was found. Inside was his cell phone, but no keys.

    Another interesting clue is that Ernandes was supposed to be going to a Tae Kwon Do class in Roanoke the night he disappeared.

    With him was a tan duffle bag that he would usually take a change of clothes in for after his workout.

    That bag is also missing from Ernandes car, something investigators would like to find.

    When his son didn't come home for supper, Tim Ernandes went to the Walmart. He found his son's car, a dark blue 1987 Pontiac Firebird, in the store's parking lot. The car was locked and Alexander Ernandes' keys and cellphone were still inside, the father said.

    Police said they are interviewing Alexander Ernandes' acquaintances and friends. They also have viewed Walmart surveillance tapes.

    Alexander Ernandes lives at home and is close to his family, Hunt said. He was an honor student at Franklin County High School, where he was in the ROTC program. He also was enrolled in classes at Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke and was waiting for acceptance letters from Virginia Military Institute and the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., his father said.

    according to the facebook page, he was found murdered and an arrest has been made. I have NOT read this in the news yet but they say it will come out around noon today for confirmation.

    Keys or no keys locked in the car? Conflicting reports. Wonder what's on the Wal-Mart video?

    If he was attacked/robbed and his keys had been on him, I would bet that the vehicle would have been either taken or ransacked.

    The other nagging question I have is: he seems to have had high expectations for himself... An honor student applying to VMI but more importantly West Point. I wonder if he found out that he didn't get in... Just a thought. This is just speculation on my part, however, and MOO.

    Ernandes' father, Tim Ernandes, of the Scruggs area of Franklin County, said his son was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Walmart in Rocky Mount with a close friend.

    There is rumors a body has been found posted on the Help Find Alex FB page, perhaps that is what the news conference is about.

    About 1:30 p.m Thursday, Ernandes met a friend at Walmart, Hunt said. In an interview, the friend said he left Ernandes inside the store about 1:45 p.m. No one has had contact with Ernandes since then.
