    TX - Rudolph 'Rudy' Farias, 17, Houston, 6 March 2015

    Rudolph "Rudy" Farias IV

    UPDATE: Rudy suffers from depression, PTSD and anxiety. He has attempted suicide in the past. It is possible he is disoriented as he has not been taking his medication. Rudy is also asthmatic but is not in possession of his inhaler. According to his mother he is very wary around strangers.
    UPDATE: The search for Rudy Farias will start up again tomorrow morning. We suspended the search yesterday due to unsafe conditions for our search teams. With the weather clearing, we can resume operations.
    Original Post: 17 year old, Rudolph “Rudy” Farias IV was last seen near Tidwell and Park drive around 6:30 PM on Friday March 6, 2015. He was wearing blue jeans, black Tee Shirt, grey cotton gloves and brown shoes. At the time Rudy went missing he was walking his two dogs. The dogs have been found but Rudy is still missing.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I hope that this boy will be found safe, he's apparently gone through a tragic loss just a few months ago.

    Missing boy was former HPD officers son
    He's described as a shy and very reserved teenager who's gone through quite a bit in the last couple of years. But now Rudy Farias the fourth has vanished off the face of the earth.

    "something is telling me that something is not right," says Janie Farias, mother of missing boy.

    Due to the investigation, his mother can not show her face during the interview but tells us the timid boy was last seen walking his dog down this road in East Harris County. 10 days later, flyers such as this one are posted all over the area.

    Farias adds, "it's been way too long, it's time to get my baby's picture out there."

    The boys case has generated much attention, for it's connection to the police officer who committed suicide at HPD headquarters on August 19. Rodolfo Farias, a 21 year veteran who was being investigated in a ticket rigging fraud, was the missing boy's father.

    "Somebody knows something and someone saw him walking down the street that night," says Brenda Paradise, a private investigator.

    According to that article:
    Rudy was " set to testify as a witness in an important criminal case" in two weeks.
    It seems that coupled with his recent losses would be a great deal for a 17 year old with depression and anxiety to deal with. Hoping he's found soon.

    When the father committed suicide it was all over the news here. That type of attention for something so tragic had to be overwhelming.

    From the article it looks like his dogs returned home with no leashes. Also included is a look at his recent losses. Poor guy, I hope he comes home soon..

    Thinking of Rudy. I hope he's ok. I hate to think the worst, but I'm definitely worried about him. The leashes make me uncomfortable--hanging/strangulation comes to mind.
    IMO

    Sadly, I see what you mean.

    He knew the father took his own life and Idk if Rudy could have made it in the city on his own for this long. I hope I am wrong.

    According to the Never Forget Me fb page https://www.facebook.com/WeWontForgetThem , Rudy is being considered for this unknown young man who is in the hospital in Las Angeles,Ca. They are running DNA. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

    Whether he is Rudy or not, he has been identified. Updating by the minute. His mother has had time to get there, I believe, so not sure if she's found him or not. Or the hospital got ahead of themselves.

    Thank you for posting this. On the comments is a link to someone who is Rudy's mom? She said that the social worker confirmed it is Rudy. I hope it is for him and the families sake. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

    He was 215 lbs when he went missing 3 months ago and no known tattoos. John Doe in hospital is 145 lbs and has 2 tattoos, one is huge right on his chest. I also don't think the picture is him. I so want this to be Rudy, but I don't think it is.
