Tom Green County Sheriff's Office: Missing Abilene man could be 'victim of foul play'

Eric Vincent Torrez, 41

ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man missing since Friday could be "the victim of foul play," the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday.

Eric Vincent Torrez, 41, was last seen headed to San Angelo. He was driving a grey, 2008 Ford F-150 with Texas license plate AL2-8071. He was reported missing by his mother.

The announcement from Tom Green County comes a day after Abilene police issued a similar alert.

On Wednesday, the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office said the missing man's last known location was in the northern part of Tom Green County.


Last Friday, Torrez told a co-worker that he was going to Tom Green County to "bid on a job," the sheriff's office said in the news release.

According to his sister Victoria De Loera, Torrez moved to Abilene a few months ago from Sweetwater.

De Loera said Torrez was a self-employed contractor who did concrete floors and countertops.

In addition, she said he hasn't answered any phone calls or texts since Friday.

If you have information about Torrez or have seen his pickup, call Abilene police at (325) 673-8331 or the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at (325) 655-8111.
