The family of Jaime Romero, who was last seen April 2.

Jaime Romero, 30, was last seen on April 2 near his home. His car was found outside the residence, with his belongings inside, and no signs of foul play. His sister, Sonia Cornejo, says her brother owned an electrical business, Elite Electrical Design. She says they have not received any indication his disappearance has anything to do with his business.

"No we haven't had any calls. Some people have called concerned. Some people didn't know," Cornejo says.

Cornejo says the long waits and lack of information have made the situation worse for her family, even more so because of fears that someone may have taken her brother.

"We want you to know that we love, and we miss you," she says.

Romero is an active Jehovah's Witness, but his sister says a recent leg injury had prevented him from doing field service such as knocking on doors. He's described as 5-feet-7-inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with short, black hair.
