LAREDO, Texas (KXAN) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for public assistance tracking down a man from Laredo who went missing in 2018.

Dominguez is described as a 5 feet 4 inches tall man weighing around 160 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos including the names “Maria” and “Papi Chulo” on his neck, the name “Jackie” on his left hand, and the name “Hector” on his left leg. He also a large tattoo of clowns on his right arm and the number seven on his left leg. He was last seen wearing a red and white polo shirt, jeans and tennis shoes.
