A Brownsville family is searching for their loved one who has been missing since Friday.

Ramiro Avila, better known by his family and friends as Junior or Kimberly, never came home after getting dropped off in downtown Brownsville Friday evening.

"He was going out as Kimberly," said younger brother Noe Avila. "You know my brother--he is gay, and so he dresses as a lady."

Avila said his brother likes to go out, but always comes home at the end of the night.

The Avila family filed a missing person report with the Brownsville Police Department after 24 hours of not knowing about Junior's location.

Brownsville police confirmed they are looking for Avila, but do not have any leads yet.

"My biggest fear is everybody’s, my family's biggest fear to find him lifeless," Avila said. "Mentally you are killing yourself just thinking about it, and you just want something concrete.”

The family has placed posters throughout downtown Brownsville, with the hopes that someone will come forward with information about Avila's location.

Anyone with information that could help locate Avila is urged to contact the Brownsville Police Department at 956-548-7000.
