Family asks for help in locating father of 4 missing in Albany Park – NBC Chicago

The family of a man who has been missing since last week in Albany Park are asking the community for help in their search for the 53-year-old father of four.

Hector Manuel Franco Tello was last seen around 6:50 a.m. on March 9 leaving his home for work in the 4900 block of North Spaulding Avenue, according to a missing person alert from Chicago police.

His actions on the day of his disappearance were “irrelevant”, according to Pastor Emma Lozano, who has spoken to Tello’s wife and is helping the family.

Tello, who has worked at the same shift for 18 years and has never come home for lunch, came home at lunchtime that day and dropped off his lunch box, phone, coins identification and car keys.

He parked the family car in the parking lot behind their apartment “and then he disappears,” Lozano said. “We don’t know what happened to him. We know he is gone and the family is very upset.

Tello is the father of four children and was awaiting a visa application notice, his family said, adding that he had recently felt “overwhelmed”.

Faith leaders and community members held a press conference Monday at the Adalberto Memorial United Methodist Church in Wicker Park, then a large group of supporters headed to the Tello neighborhood to knock on doors and search the nearby river.
