Sophia Alaniz: Authorities Looking for Missing Plainview Woman

Sophia Alanizm is missing and family fears that maybe she has been abducted by previous acquaintance.

More than 24 hours after Sophia Alaniz’s disappearance, her family passed out 500 missing person posters around Plainview and Lubbock. Barbara Croswell did not think she would be passing out information about her missing cousin.

“I know she left him a couple of weeks ago and was staying with a good friend. He found out where she was,” said Barbara.

Marcus Barrios dated Sophia for six months. She left him when she found out his sorted past. “The last run-in was a stalking charge. He had a history of assaults against ex-girlfriends,” said Constable Mark Mull.

Hale County Crime stoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to Barrio’s arrest. The two were last seen driving away in a 2002 Chevy Malibu like this one with the license plate number H17-ZRJ .

The car also has a Longhorn sticker on the back window. If you have any information, call the Texas Rangers at (806) 296-2724. Because of Barrios’s history of violence and gang relations, Hale County called the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Marshals to assist.
