MP of the week: Adan Velasco

This week’s featured missing person is Adan Andrada Velasco, an 18-year-old boy who disappeared from Austin, Texas on May 2, 2007. He’s described as Hispanic, 5’9 and 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, and a tattoo on his abdomen of a shield with the initials AV and the number 88. I have a photo of the tattoo.

It’s not clear whether Adan ran away from home or what, but it’s mentioned he could be in the Chicago area and may be with a white Maltese dog.

He suffers from an unspecified mental illness or illnesses. He’d be 33 today, and has been missing for close to half his life.

    Curious as to how you feel about the Gabby Petito case, as it seems to be bringing renewed attention to missing persons cases that have gone cold, or ones that have never seen much media attention?

      I don’t have any particular feelings about it; I don’t really know much about it. But I’ve been interviewed about Missing White Woman Syndrome twice in the past two days.
