Father seeks answers in missing 14-year-old daughter’s case

Eva Marie Garcia, 14, last seen Oct. 16; Amber Alert issued

HONDO, Texas – Robert Garcia continues to search for answers almost one month after his 14-year-old daughter, Eva, was reported missing.

“It’s something that you expect the worst,” Garcia said.

Eva Marie Garcia was last seen around 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 16 at 202 18th St., Lot 81 in Hondo, officials said.

Robert Garcia said an argument took place after his daughter arrived home past her curfew.

Shortly after, he went to check on his daughter and discovered that she had run away.

“I went into her room and turned on the light and I saw a blanket. She had tucked it in like a body," Robert Garcia said.

He immediately contacted the Hondo Police Department, which has been searching for the teen since.

Garcia said he hopes his daughter hears his message.

“I need you. I need you to come back home, hopefully soon," he said.

An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday afternoon.

The teen is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a black and white shirt, black shorts and pink sandles.

Law enforcement officials believe Eva Marie Garcia to be in grave or immediate danger.

If you have seen her, call the Hondo Police Department at 830-741-6153.
