Eleven-year-old Larry Avila vanished sometime after leaving Valencia Middle School. The Tucson boy was last seen in the afternoon, but didn’t return home. Deputies are searching for the missing child, but have so far been unsuccessful.
Larry Avila stands at about 4’3″ with a thin build. The 11-year-old child is small for his age with brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing his school uniform — a blue shirt and brown shorts. The missing Tucson child could be anywhere as Tuesday is around the corner, which must be absolutely heartbreaking for his family.
Larry isn’t the only child to go missing in the area recently. 6-year-old Isabel Celis is also missing from Tucson and she hasn’t been found. Hopefully these two cases aren’t connected, and so far they don’t appear to be. Isabel Celis was snatched out of her room, and this young man was last seen on school grounds. Could he have fallen victim to a predator who was watching the schoolyard for child prey?
