FBI Seeks Public’s Help in Locating Missing Laredo Man

LAREDO, TX—The Federal Bureau of Investigation San Antonio Division, Laredo Resident Agency Office, is seeking information from the public about a missing Laredo man.

Hector Dominguez, 32, was last seen walking on foot from his residence in South Laredo late at night on September 23, 2018. He called a family member at approximately 1:45 a.m. on September 24, 2018, to say he was on his way home, but never arrived. Through the course of the investigation, agents found evidence that Dominguez had been in Nuevo Laredo in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico, before his disappearance.

Dominguez is 5’4” in height, approximately 160 pounds and has short black hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos, including the name “Maria” on the back of his neck and “Papi Chulo” on the left side of his neck. He also has a large tattoo of clowns on his left arm, the name “Jackie” on his right hand, the name “Hector” and the number seven on his left leg. He was last seen wearing a red and white polo shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes. Dominguez, who is a U.S. citizen, is a predominately Spanish speaker.

After his disappearance, the family of Hector Dominguez received ransom demands for money from individuals in Mexico, but the family was unable to meet those demands, as the amount exceeded their financial means.

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