SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KWTX) The FBI Friday asked for the public’s help in the search for a 39-year-old woman who’s a Mexican citizen and her two children, both U.S. citizens, who disappeared over the weekend in Nuevo Laredo.

Esmeralda Vielma Cisneros, 39, Alexander Vielma, 15, and Naum Zaid Ramos, 11, were last seen on Jan. 19 riding in a dark grey 2019 Renault Duster with license SCH472A Nuevo Leon near the Lincoln/Juarez International Bridge in Nuevo Laredo, the FBI said in a press release Friday.

Authorities think they were on their way to visit a family member over the three-day weekend.

Neither they nor their vehicle has been seen since and the FBI has no confirmed information the three ever crossed the bridge.

Esmeralda Cisneros is 5-foot-1, weighs about 130 pounds and has short brown hair and brown eyes.

Alexander is 5-foot-4, weighs about 155 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

Naum is 4-foot-2, weighs about 66 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

Alexander attends school in Laredo and requires medication that he does not have with him, the FBI said.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the FBI San Antonio Division at 210-225-6741 with any information.
