LUBBOCK, TX -- Mark Ysasaga's mother Anna talks about her son a day ahead of the two year anniversary of his disappearance.

"Just seems like it gets harder and harder, he just turned 17," Anna Cuevas, Mark's mother said.

Mark Ysasaga was last seen on June 14th, 2012. In the last year, his football jersey was retired at his middle school, and one of his friend's wears his number in high school.

"Very outgoing, loved to always be outdoors, loved football, that was his joy was football," Anna said. "He loved doing it."

Two years later, Anna is marking the anniversary by holding a candlelight vigil as well as a balloon release. She's not just doing it for Mark, she's also including the two other missing person cases in Lubbock, Meagan Hembree and Zoe Campos.

Anna said they all bring each other support, knowing the pain they all feel, not having a child home, and not knowing where they are, or if they are safe.

"We're standing as one, and we're not going to stop until we get answers, and the people that are out there who know something to each one of our cases, see that we're going to fight together," Anna said.

Anna hopes someone will come forward in each of the missing person cases and tell them where their loved ones are.

"We just want to know where any of them are," Anna said.

The vigil will be Saturday, June 14th, at 8 p.m. in the parking lot between the mall and the Home Depot off of Slide.
