20-year-old Santa Ana resident Robert Estrada has been missing since Sunday, May 17th and hasn't been seen since 6:45 p.m. in Anaheim while on his way back home. His father, Santiago Estrada who lives in Murrieta, says that his Robert's mom, who lives in Irvine, received a missed call from Robert at 2 a.m. on Monday morning but when she called him back there was no answer. His family has since started a Facebook page called "Help Find Robert Estrada" to get as many tips from friends, family, and community members as possible.
"We followed a few leads yesterday with no success but, after putting the pieces of the puzzle together, there is a small possibility we have a slight reason to believe that Robert might be in the Garden Grove area," a status on the Facebook page posted on Wednesday, May 20 read. "However, that is just speculation. Let's keep on pushing." Santiago says that because Robert is a skater, he and his family have been searching for him in Orange County skateparks, 7-Elevens, and liquor stores.
Robert was last seen wearing a black hooded sweater, skinny jeans, and black Vans sneakers. Santiago says that he often wears a beanie. He's 5'5" tall, 120 lbs, has short brown hair, and wears glasses. He drives a 1999 White Chevy Prism four-door which a license plate number of 4FIV828.

"We just want to make sure he's safe," says Santiago. "We don't know what's going on--it's not in his nature. He's 20 years old, so sometimes it takes him long to communicate with you--but it's usually a couple hours not days. Some people I don't even know have reached out to me on Facebook and we really appreciate it. We just want him to know that we love him."
If anyone has leads on where Robert Estrada is, call 911, the Estrada's provided phone number (714)-728-5270, or reach out to the Estradas on this Facebook page.
