One local man’s mission to help find missing people gets some high tech help


SAN ANTONIO- Though Frank Trevino is retired he's still very busy. Trevino helps keep up with Facebook book pages including the page of missing grandmother Maria Llamas and grandfather Pete Carreon.

Trevino says his passion for helping families of missing loved ones started more than 20 years ago. "She was a co-worker of mine, that was my very first search , I believe it was 1997."

Trevino says to this day she believes his former co-worker from California has not been found. Recently Trevino help get missing persons banners on various digital billboards in the city.

"I contacted Lamar, and they were very responsive." Trevino says Lamar Advertising told him as long as he provided the information they would run the missing persons ads when additional space was not taken by an advertiser.

"When the families go the new that their billboards were going up, they were crying there were tears with the family." Trevino hopes to get more missing persons posters on digital billboards throughout the state.

"Hopefully they right person see it, and they right person makes that call."
