Thirty-seven year old angel Tapia has been missing for about a year now. FBI agents say he disappeared in Mexico last April while he was there on a business trip . Investigators say Tapia and a co-worker from Buhrke Industries in Arlington Heights went to Monclova, Mexico, to talk to a plant manger about thefts at that location. Monclava is about 150 miles southwest of Laredo, Texas.
FBI agents say Tapia's wife was the last person to speak with him at around 7 pm on April 25th, 2009. Thats also when some of Tapia's co-workers dropped him off at the Fiesta Americana hotel.
The FBI's Mike Kosanovich says Tapia was last seen outside the hotel on the morning of April 26th. Kosanovich adds video from the security system shows Tapia in the parking lot near a white suburban SUV. Investigators believe Tapia was taken against his will and say no ransom demands have been made.
The FBI is offering a ten-thousand dollar reward for any information leading to Tapia's location.
Tapia is described as a hispanic male, about five feet six inches tall, weighing around 185 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
If you see him, call police.
