The father of Antonio Villegas spoke about how he's not losing hope of finding his missing son as Mission police continued to search for him.

Police patrolled up and down the Rio Grande river on Thursday but did not find any signs of Villegas who has been missing since Sunday morning. A massive search was started on Sunday and continued on Thursday with the FBI joining the search. Villages' father spoke to the media for the first time on Thursday since the search and said, "I'm hoping somebody rescued my son and if they want a reward, I'm the father Antonio Villegas. I wish somebody could help me give my son back a reward whatever, what ever it takes, I need my son back."

Police say the younger Villegas called 911 from a bushy area off of Inspiration road, but never found him. The family has received tremendous help from the community including the Alton fire department. If you know the whereabouts of Villegas you can call 956.739.0445.
