Fowler family offers reward for help in finding a missing man

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said her deputies need help after two months of searching for clues into the whereabouts of Fernando Subia.

Subia was last seen walking near Adams and Clovis avenues, not far from his home on December 9th. He worked at the Harris Ranch Beef plant near Selma. He did not show up for work the next day and never came home, leaving everyone baffled.

At a news conference on Tuesday, Mims said, "We don't have information at all about what happened to him. Just the fact he hasn't contacted his family his children and his wife leads us to believe there is something very suspicious about this we are very concerned and asking for the public's help."

The Sheriff and the missing man's family are praying somebody knows what happened to the 46-year-old father of four. His wife, Elizabeth, and children who range in age from 6 to 13 are desperate for his return.

Elizabeth made this plea, "Fernando if you are out there I want you to know we love you and we all want you to come home."

The missing man's sister Anita Ramirez, told us her brother was well known and well liked in Fowler, where he grew up.

"Very happy, very sociable loving person everybody knew him and would laugh and have good times and stuff and enjoy his company and always be around a lot of people," said Ramirez. "It was unusual for anyone to not see him and not know anything about his whereabouts, what happened."

The family is offering a $7,000 reward for anyone with any information about where he might be. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Fresno County Sheriff's Office or the nearest law enforcement agency.
