Investigators launch billboards to help find missing San Antonio teen

It has been three years since teenager Mariah Garcia was seen by her mother, Veronica De Leon. The last time Mariah was seen was when she was leaving her house in 2016, in the block of Buena Vista getting into a small sedan on June 16th.

De Leon had received a call explaining that her daughter is O.K. but without any further explanation.

Chief of Police William McManus addressed the media at a news conference on Thursday in regards of the disappearance of 15-year-old Mariah. De Leon and the President of Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA), Luis de la Torre was also present.

Over the next few months, CCOA will be displaying a photo of Mariah as well as a description cycling through the advertisements for a total of 1,200 times a day in hopes that someone will recognize her and bring new leads to the case.

Mariah is 5′ 2″ and weights 120 pounds. She wears braces. She has brown eyes and hair.

McManus told the press: “This is a life changing event for a parent, and we want to bring closure to Mariah’s mom.”

Efforts for the billboard were a partnership between the Texas Center for the Missing and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and CCOA.

McManus believes there isn’t any foul play in this case but wants to bring closure to this case.

Authorities are asking if you know the whereabouts or have any details on Mariah Garcia to please call 210-207-7660.
