Jiovany disappeared from San Marcos, Texas on November 27, 2010. He was last seen with four adult male companions: his uncle Ricardo Gomez, Luis Hernandez, Nicholas Munoz and Carlos Ortega-Gonzales. They were driving a green 2003 Chevrolet Suburban with the Texas license plate number AD98575.
The four adults live in the area, and Jiovany was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois; he had recently moved to Texas and planned to enroll in school in January 2011. He and Hernandez are American citizens and the other men are Mexican-born and legal U.S. residents. They had all gone to the border town of Laredo, Texas that day to pick up some paperwork for a vehicle, and decided to cross the border into Nuevo Laredo, Mexico to go shopping. Jiovany had never been to Mexico before.
Hernandez called his wife at approximately 12:00 p.m. and said they'd all be home by 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. They never returned, however. Law enforcement was notified on November 30, after Munoz and Hernandez didn't show up for their jobs at Heldenfels Enterprises Inc., a concrete company. They are described as reliable workers.
