Rudolph "Rudy" Farias IV
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
Help Find Missing - Rudolph 'Rudy' Farias IV
This is a rough area. I am so worried about this young man.
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.
Newish information found here.
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.
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?fbid=10204412368044710&set=pcb.10204412371924807&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?fbid=10206226513918436&set=p.10206226513918436&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.
I saw that and I too am surprised that the family is saying that the hospital told them it's him. I'm hoping too though.
I just don't see the resemblance between the John Doe and Rudy either. Plus the tats and the 70# difference in weight lends to further doubt. I know he could have gotten the tats and lost weight in the 3 months he's been missing which could account for the facial differences I see in the pics but the hair line and hair texture look different to me as well. I really hope this is Rudy though for his mom's sake at least. It would be a terrible emotional blow for her to believe this is her son if she finds its not him when she gets there.
I do not think it is Rudy either. It worries me they were so presumptive and removed the post.
Rudy's features are a lot softer than the John doe's. His nose is more "button-y" where the Doe's is sharper and his nostrils are triangular.
I hope both families get answers soon.
I agree. Her wanting this to be Rudy may have caused her to see him in those photos. Fingers crossed and prayers to her and family as we await...
She has just posted a min ago that she is boarding plane for LA and praying that it is her son. So heartbreaking... No idea how long is flight from Texas to LA but I assume she might update public by the end of the day.
Just in case, I am still searching for JD.
