Details of Disappearance

Molina was last seen in the vicinity of north Bowman Road and east Whitehill Way in Catalina, Arizona on April 9, 2018. He has never been heard from again. He lived with friends in the area, and worked at a McDonald's restaurant. His mother, who lived in Willcox, Arizona, realized he was missing after one of Molina's friends called to ask if she had seen him.

Molina is considered missing under suspicious circumstances, as his loved ones don't believe he would have gone for this long without contacting them and without seeing his two-year-old son. His case remains unsolved.
