    FAMILY DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS IN CASE OF MISSING UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON STUDENT

    http://abc13.com/news/missing-uh-stu...trace/1837571/
    Loc said his family came from Vietnam for the American dream. Loc took Eyewitness News inside An Vinh's immaculately kept bedroom. His calendar showed a paper due on Saturday with a trip to Florida scheduled for Sunday.

    An Vinh recently booked a flight to Fort Lauderdale. He was preparing to interview for a flight attendant job with Spirit Airlines. His paperwork along with the suit he just bought were untouched.
    An Vinh's family shared cellphone records with Eyewitness News. His phone is now off. They showed his last text messaged with a number from New York. A man answered when ABC13 called the phone. He did not want to be identified. He told our reporter he hadn't met An Vinh in person. However, he wouldn't say how the two know each other.

    I wonder if they're still actively searching for him.

    Finally. I wonder where, and why the secrecy.

    It was on the news that the search team were focusing on Montrose area even though he was last seen in the North side of Houston. I didn't catch the reason why Montrose was their main focus, maybe someone could shed some light.

    Hopefully they will find him soon.

    The search for a missing University of Houston student will intensify on Wednesday morning, April 19. Volunteers will fan out on foot to canvass the Willowbrook area.

    According to family members, he left a friend's home at the Golden Bamboo II Apartments at 8125 Mills Road.

    His Jeep was recently recovered and searched.

    Texas Equusearch announced Tuesday it will resume searching. Equusearch said last week a search could not be conducted until a vehicle was found. The search will focus on the Spring area.

    Could the car have been found at the airport? From the articles it seems as if the planned searches are not by LE. Maybe LE believes he's voluntarily missing?

    I wonder if his vehicle was dented before, or if this was something new? Just thinking of a hit and run type of accident, or a car jacking in which his vehicle was targeted . But why hit it and dent it all up before hijacking it ? Could it have been a road rage incident and they hit his vehicle with theirs, then shot him or something? No, No! I will now stop thinking things like that.

    The description of his vehicle when he was reported missing included the information about the dent so i think it was already there.

    The fact LE is not releasing any information about the vehicle makes me think foul play. Hope I'm wrong.

    His vehicle was found empty mid-April. LE are not releasing location found as part of their investigation.

    I don't think I've seen this article, but apparently no new developements on the case that I can find. I do wonder who the man from New York was and if they're looking into him thoroughly.
    I wonder if it's a serial killer targeting gay men. May be traveling all over the country.
