GALVESTON, Texas -- A Houston man and his sister have been missing for several days.

Rogelio Escobar, 65, disappeared from his southwest Houston home on August 26, 2018. His sister Dina Escobar, 60, went looking for him and then she disappeared.

A van resembling the one owned by Dina Escobar was found burned on Jamaica Beach in Galveston.

Rogelio Escobar is described as  5'3" and 130 lbs. with black and grey hair and brown eyes. Dina Escobar is described as  5'6" and 180lbs. with blonde hair and brown eyes.

Texas Equusearch said they would not be searching for the two on Sunday, but may search for the siblings on Monday September 3, 2018.

Dina`s daughter Ligia Salamanca put boots to the ground in a wooded area near Rogelio's home searching for any clue to her mother`s whereabouts.

“If she’s out there it’s definitely not on her own will. I know she is a very strong person and that’s what we are drawing on right. We just want this to end. We just want anyone with information to just give it to us even if it’s anonymous," said Salamanca.

The family, also, says that Houston Police’s Homicide Division has been called in to investigate further.
