"He always stayed here at the ranch and never left until now."

Rosa Lopez can't believe her father is missing. 75-year-old Benjamin Lopez was last seen at their home off of highway 359 Sunday night and it was Monday morning Rosa would get the news.

“I was here Sunday with him all day. Monday I went to work and that's when my daughter called me saying he was missing.”

Rosa says there were no signs her father wanted to leave....

"We were just here having a gathering with him. He would talk and dance. There was nothing that indicated he wanted to leave."

The sheriff’s department is the one leading this investigation and says they're doing everything they can to hopefully find Mr. Lopez and reunite him with his family.

Brenda Medina works with Webb County Sheriff’s office...

"Our investigators have been talking to residents in the area and they say he was last seen walking west bound on highway 359. He maybe be in the Laredo area."

Through it all Rosa is trying to keep herself together and hopes someone will recognize her father and bring him home.

"Dad if you're out there somewhere. Anybody call me let me know. If he's out there I just want to know."
