FBI Seeks Public’s Help in Locating Missing Laredo Family

LAREDO, TX—The Federal Bureau of Investigation San Antonio Division, Laredo Resident Agency Office, is seeking information from the public about a missing Laredo mom and her two children. Prior to their disappearance, on June 13, 2021, the family was visiting with relatives in Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo Leon, approximately 84 miles south of Laredo, Texas. The family departed at approximately 3:40 p.m. in a yellow, 2014 Chevrolet Sonic with Texas license plates NBX-4740 destined for Laredo, Texas. Investigators believe the family likely went missing on the Monterrey-Nuevo Laredo Highway at kilometro 100 by Vallecillo.

The mother, Gladys Cristina Perez Sanchez, a 39-year-old employee of a Laredo school district, has brown eyes, long black hair, is approximately 5’ in height and approximately 150 pounds. She was last seen wearing a green polo shirt and blue jeans. Her son, 16-year-old John Carlos Gonzalez, has brown eyes, short red hair, and is approximately 5’8” in height and approximately 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt. Perez Sanchez’s daughter, 9-year-old Michelle Cristina Duran, has brown eyes, short, black, curly hair, is approximately 4’10” in height and approximately 130 pounds. She was last seen wearing a striped t-shirt.

There were no indications the family did not plan to return to their home in Laredo. The mom’s health could be at risk if she does not have access to medications she requires on a daily basis.

Although the whereabouts of Perez Sanchez and her two children are unknown at this time, investigators believe they could possibly be in Parse, Nuevo Leon.

The public is urged to call the FBI San Antonio Division at (210) 225-6741 with any information. Tips can also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov. Individuals who provide information may remain anonymous.
