Armando Morfin has been missing for more than two weeks but his family is now offering a $105,000 dollar reward for his return.
Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office deputies report Morgin was kidnapped at his La Blanca home back on March 30th.
Three men dressed in military-style clothes broke into their home, tied up his family and took him away.
Morfin TMs wife Marina Morfin said both she and her daughter were tied up.
She watched as the armed men wrestled with her husband.
Marina said she and her daughter were able to get out of the house and call for help.
But Marina said the three men took her husband.
Ever since then, she says she has not heard from the kidnappers or from police.
Marina said her husband suffers from multiple sclerosis.
"Well you know in the news they're saying that it could be drug related cause he did time, Marina said in a telephone interview. He didn't do six years, he only did three years and he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and we just don't understand what's going on."
Marina said she TMs left the Rio Grande Valley because she fears for her safety and the safety of her children.
But she said her in-laws and other family members all pulled together and raised $105,000 dollars in reward money.
They TMre asking for any information that leads deputies to find her husband.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers at (956) 668-TIPS.
