HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — An entire family of four, including a wife, husband, and their two small children, have not been heard from since they left New Orleans on a bus two months ago to move to Houston, according to Louisiana police.
On Monday, the New Orleans Police Department released details about the disappearances of 27-year-old mother Steys Yanira David-Funez; 31-year-old father Ramon Ruiz Crisanto; and their two daughters, 4-year-old Jazzlyn Esther Ruiz David and 1-year-old Dara Ismeray Ruiz David.
Police said David-Funez’s father reported them missing.
According to police, the missing mother’s father drove the family to the Greyhound bus station at 1001 Loyola Ave. in New Orleans on Nov. 30, 2023.
Police said they were told the family was moving to Houston, and the David-Funez’s father said he received a text message on the same date informing him that they arrived at their destination.
Police said things took a turn.
David-Funez’s father reported that he tried to contact his daughter the same week of their arrival but without success.
Police said he then reached out to other relatives in Texas, who told him the family never arrived at their destination.
That led to several more tries at reaching out to the family, but they failed again.
As of Monday, the family left New Orleans 67 days ago.
Police said the family members are Hispanic. They provided photos of them but no descriptors.
If you have seen the family, New Orleans police are urging you to contact their Sixth District detectives at 504-658-6060.
