A MISSING father of five’s voice went distorted in a chilling final phone call before he disappeared after accepting a job, his heartbroken family said.
His daughter Ariadna Albarran said she last saw him when he returned from Sherm’s Thunderbird Market in Medford, Oregon, with milk to make hot chocolate for his nine grandchildren.
Albarran told McClatchy News that he was excited to return and announce that he got an offer to work with a man that he met while shopping.
The man told Guerrero to meet him before noon at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, according to Albarran.
“After that, nobody saw him,” the heartbroken daughter said.
Albarran did say the family heard from him in a phone call at around 5pm that evening.
“Hey, where are you? Are you home?'” Albarran said her mother asked.
Sadly, the patriarch said “I’m near Riverside,” before his voice faded and the call dropped.
The family filed a missing persons report with Medford police 48 hours later.
Distraught members of the family have searched throughout the city since Guerrero disappeared, but have tragically found nothing.
They shared that Guerrero suffered a head injury while working around six months ago, raising additional concerns about his well-being.
According to the family, he sometimes has lapses in memory because of the blow.
“I feel almost defeated, but I’m not giving up,” said Albarran, who is the mother of three kids.
“I really just want to find answers.”
The missing man has been married to Albarran’s mother for more than 30 years, and she is taking the situation to heart.
“She’s not eating. She’s not sleeping,” Albarran said.
“I’ve never seen my mom this broken.”
Albarran Guerrero is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs around 175 pounds, his daughter said.
He has hazel eyes and was last seen wearing a green Oregon Ducks sweater, a gray hat, blue jeans, and brown work boots.
