Guam - It was earlier this week we brought you the story on Jon Cruz, a 25-year-old Guam boy living in California who was reported missing since July 30th.

Now, we bring you a similar story. This time, another Guam son is reported missing out of Las Vegas, Nevada.

He's far from home, but not from the hearts of family, friends, and even strangers praying for the safe return of Christopher Biscoe.

If you've scrolled through social media in the last day, his face may have made your news feed - specifically his missing poster asking the public's help in bringing the 22-year-old back to his Las Vegas home where he lives with his father.

Here on island, big sister Regine Biscoe Lee says social media is playing a vital role in obtaining any lead to his whereabouts.

"We've been having just an overwhelming amount of support from friends family and even people we don't even know sharing this information to get the word out and get my brother back home," she said.

Biscoe, who last spoke to her baby brother last week, tells KUAM her stateside family report he was last seen leaving the Quad Hotel on Wednesday at 1:30 a.m. Christopher never returned home nor did he show up for work the following day. Although he was scheduled to go on a vacation to California with close friends the next day, none of his friends have heard from him.

As for any other communication, Christopher's phone was shut off since Wednesday. He was last seen wearing light blue shorts, a white t-shirt, and wearing a small brown backpack with a cartoon monster printed on it.

"Our family has reached out to red rock search and rescue out in Las Vegas," Lee said. "We're working with the banks and the detectives and the hotel where he was last seen and the bus route he normally travels. We're just trying to get additional information as to where he might be and we just want to make sure we bring him home safely."

Earlier today, Lee posted on Facebook that family are working off a strong lead and will need to verify the new information. Nonetheless, she continues to ask family and friends to pray for her brother's safe return.

UPDATE: Lee later reported that Christopher had been found and is safe.
