Family frantically searches for dad of three who vanished after going to buy car

A family in Cypress, Texas, is asking for public’s help in locating a father who reportedly vanished earlier this month after going to purchase a vehicle.

KHOU reported that Alberto Arias-Nunez, 37, was last heard from on December 13 when he called his wife to tell her that he arrived in Tyler. Arias-Nunez was supposedly going Tyler to see a friend who owns a body shop and then go see a car he was planning to buy.

His wife, Bianca Arias, told the station that the friend reported having lunch with her husband before hopping on the road to travel back to Cypress. Arias called police to report her husband missing after she couldn’t make contact with him.

The Waskom Police Department recovered his car later that night in Waskom after officers responded to an alarm at a nearby business. His SUV was unlocked but police said there were no obvious signs of foul play.

“When they told me they found the truck and not my husband I was just like, ‘God, give me strength.’ That’s the only thing I can ask for right now,” the missing man’s wife said.

His family believes foul play is involved and that disappearing isn’t normal for the father, who has an infant daughter and two young sons.

“I don’t know what to tell to my kids,” Bianca tearfully told KHOU.

“My baby, she just smiles… she doesn’t know nothing that is going on and I just wish, to be a kid again and just not to know what’s going on.”

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information about Alberto Arias-Nunez’ whereabouts is urged to call the Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1090.
