    Police found him after eight years of continuous search. They received a call from the locals on June 29 and when the officers rushed to the scene it was determined to be the man himself.

    Who Are Rudy Farias’ Parents? His Age in 2023

    Rudy is the son of Rudolph Farias and Janie Santana. His late father Rudolph was a Houston police officer. Rudy was born Rudolph “Rudy” Farias IV on October 1 1997 in Houston Texas United States.

    He is 25 years old as of 2023. He spent his childhood in his hometown alongside his parents and half-brother Charles Uresti.

    His Father and Half-brother Have Both Passed Away

    Rudy lost both his father and half-brother at a very young age. His sibling Charles Uresti who was 21 years old at the time lost his life in a motorcycle accident in 2011. At the time, Farias was just 13 years of age.

    Unfortunately enough, just 3 years later his father took his own life. The Houston Police Department fired him for his involvement in the ticket-rigging scandal. Mr. Farias, 51 was found dead in a police parking lot in August 2014.

    What Happened To Rudy Farias? How Did He Go Missing?

    On March 6, 2015, the 17 years old boy Rudy went missing. According to the missing report filed by Rudy’s mother Janie, he was walking his two dogs. However, the dogs were found but he wasn’t.

    Farias was last spotted near Tidwell and Park Drive at around 6:30 PM. He was wearing a black Tee Shirt, grey cotton gloves, blue jeans, and brown shoes.

    Similarly, following his disappearance, Texas EquuSearch, a non-profit organization in Texas that had been looking into Rudy’s missing case since the beginning shared a Facebook post talking about the then-missing boy with updates from time to time.

    Moreover, according to the statement given by Rudy’s mom, the Texas EquuSearch stated that he has an injured right leg. Mr. Farias suffers from PTSD and anxiety and has attempted to take his life in the past. Likewise, they also emphasized that he hadn’t taken his medications and is asthmatic.

    On June 29, 2023, Rudy who went missing eight years ago in March 2015 was found unconscious in a church at 76th St. at Ave L. During an interview with KPRC’s Corley Peel, his mother said that good Samaritans found him and immediately called 911.

    According to the reports, the now 25-year-old was severely injured with multiple burns and cuts and is unable to speak.

    Similarly, Mrs. Santana said that she is happy to have her son back and thanked everyone for their continuous efforts and prayers but stated that he is currently recovering in the hospital and asked for privacy during this difficult time.

    Her exact words were,

    “We want to thank the media and public for all their support. My son Rudy Farias IV was found on Thursday, June 29th, after being missing for 8 years. Currently, we do not have any additional information on Rudy’s case. What we do know is at the time of recovery, a good Samaritan located him unresponsive and immediately called police and 911.”

    She further added:

    “My son Rudy is receiving the care he needs to overcome his trauma, but at this time, he is nonverbal and not able to communicate with us. We are asking for privacy during this difficult time but will share more details as Rudy continues to heal.”

    Texas EquuSearch Director Tim Miller Says Its A Miracle

    After Rudy was found the Texas EquuSearch director, Tim Miller talked with Click 2 Houston sharing his thoughts saying it’s nothing less than a miracle. He said that he believed in miracles and it was one. Since he and his team had been in search of Farias for the last eight years and were surprised that he has finally been found.

    Likewise, he also pointed out that they talked with someone with a catering truck that said they saw Mr. Rudy and there were several other sightings. But the clues didn’t lead them to him. Miller even admitted he had already decided that Farias wasn’t alive considering the aforementioned condition he was in.

    Rudy Farias Claims He Was Sexually And Physically Abused By His Mom

    Rudy claimed that he was physically and mentally abused by his mother who reportedly drugged him. During an interview, activist Quanell X stated that Farias opened up about his miserable situation when talking to him. According to Quanell, Rudy did return two days after he tried to run away because he had enough of his mother trying to assault him.

    Furthermore, the young boy reportedly told the activist that his mother threatened him by saying he would be in trouble with the officers if he opened his mouth. Similarly, Quanell X said, Rudy’s mother had locked him in the house and would always cross his personal boundaries sexually abusing and drugging him.


    Even more so, Quanell stated that Farias accompanied his mom to her work and was allowed to talk to the neighbors because she believed that no one would suspect them since several years had already gone by.

    However, the investigators believe the claims are false since they have found no evidence of sexual abuse or drugs. Similarly, for now, police have decided not to charge Santana as the Harris County District Attorney declined to file charges against Farias and his mother for the false missing report.

    That said, these claims are relatively new and the officers are currently investigating the case. Hence, there is still a chance of the mother-son duo being charged with deceiving the Houston Police for years.

    Is Rudy Farias Married To A Wife? Does He Have Any Children?

    Farias isn’t married to anyone and doesn’t have a wife. Similarly, the subject of Rudy having children is out of the question. Since we believe that Farias is single and is currently being treated at the hospital for his wounds and burns.
