Jon Cruz missing since July 30

Guam - One family with local roots in Hayward, California, is hoping that the island community will help spread the word in the search of their loved one, Jon Cruz.

Julie Cruz Miller says her 25-year old nephew has been missing since July 30. "He was last seen when the family has said goodnight; he was in his room at1:30am," she told KUAM News.

According to Miller, the next morning his door was shut and being that he is a young adult, no one bothered Cruz or thought to check up on him. She says later in the day, they had bought pizza and came home and went to his room to call him to eat but Cruz was nowhere to be found. "That raised the flag that he could have just gone out, but because he didn't return two days later. We called 911 and reported him missing was at home," she added.

Since his disappearance, there has been no activity on his ATM card and cell phone and there has been no contact with his family, friends or co-workers. "He didn't take his toothbrush, he didn't take his gel, his charger, he didn't act as if he was going anywhere...he didn't pack anything to go anywhere," she said.

Miller says family and friends have been reaching out to local media outlets and have been tirelessly canvassing and passing out fliers, in hopes someone has seen him. She has even placed calls to hospitals and the coroner's office for possible John Does and with all their efforts, so far no leads have come up. Police say that because of his age, he could be voluntarily missing, which Miller says is heartbreaking.

"We know that's not Jon," she expressed. "We're a very close family."

Miller has this to say to the island community: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Thank you for your prayers, and if you can, please continue not to just share our Facebook page. Somebody has seen him...someone has had to seen him."
