Foul Play suspected in Hanford man's disappearance
Last Update: 1/05 8:14 am
A Kings County family is asking for your help to find a missing man. No one's seen 28-year-old Michael De La Cruz in a month.
Several unconfirmed reports to the Kings County Sheriff's Department claim he's possibly the victim of foul play.
On Monday, Kings County Sheriff Chris Jordan read a statement from the missing man's father that read, “If indeed the rumors are true that our son has been killed, please give us the information or where his remains can be found so that we can provide a proper burial.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of De La Cruz is asked to call the Kings County Sheriff's Department at (559) 582-3211, X2720.

A man whose body was found in a canal southeast of Stratford in Kings County has been identified, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Michael Joseph DeLaCruz, 27, was identified based on several tattoos.
Deputies went to the canal near 19th and Madison avenues Friday afternoon after a report of a mannequin in the water. The sighting turned out to be a body.
An autopsy is scheduled for today.
Anyone with information on the case can call the sheriff’s detectives unit at (559) 582-3211, ext. 2819.
