LUBBOCK, TX -- With the announcement, Monday, that missing Lubbock teen Zoe Campos may be endangered, another family searching for their son is now determined to bring both teens home. 

Mark Ysasaga, 16, has been missing since June 2012 and his mother is devastated she may have to spend another Christmas without him.

"It's hard not to think of what he wanted for Christmas," said Anna Cuevas.  "But I still hang a stocking thinking maybe this is it, he'll be home soon."

Over the past year and a half, Cuevas has continued to search for her son.

"I'm always passing out flyers," she said.  "We have newspapers, the missing persons newspaper my son's front page; I always have a bundle with me."

To cope with Ysasaga's disappearance, Cuevas helps other families with missing loved ones.

"I think ok we can find this one, the next is mine," said Cuevas.

When she heard the news two weeks ago that another Lubbock teen had disappeared she immediately stepped in to comfort Zoe Campos' grieving family.

"It's hard to see another child missing especially the holidays," said Cuevas. 

Cuevas can't take away the pain Campos' family is going through; she says she can only offer words of advice.

"Just that hope, just hearing something, keep it," said Cuevas.  "Let it build up knowing she's out there.  She's ok.  Just something happened, and she can't find her way back home."

If you have information about either Ysasaga or Campos call 806-741-1000.
