LAREDO, Texas – The FBI is seeking help from the public in finding a missing Laredo mother and her two children.

According to a news release, the family was last seen on June 13 while visiting relatives in Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo Leon, approximately 84 miles south of Laredo.

The family departed at approximately 3:40 p.m. in a yellow, 2014 Chevrolet Sonic with Texas license plates NBX-4740 destined for Laredo.

Investigators believe the family likely disappeared on the Monterrey-Nuevo Laredo Highway at kilometer marker 100 by Vallecillo.

There were no indications the family did not plan to return to their home in Laredo. Perez Sanchez’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 Paras, Nuevo Leon.
