Authorities are searching for a woman last seen earlier this month who might be with her boyfriend. The boyfriend is accused of murder in Texas.
On Nov. 5, family members reported Tallen Shyann Treto-Padilla missing to the McClain County Sheriff’s Office.
Treto-Padilla was last seen driving her white 2009 GMC Acadia with Oklahoma license plate LPV‐540 when she left her job in the Wayne, Oklahoma, area.
Investigators suspected Treto-Padilla may be accompanied by her then boyfriend, Francisco Velasquez, also known as Mike “Paco” Mendoza.
As part of the investigation, investigators found Velasquez has an active arrest warrant for murder out of Texas where a man was killed at a San Antonio restaurant in 2018.
Velasquez is 36 years old. He is described as a Hispanic male about six feet tall and weighing about 230 pounds. Velasquez also has black hair and brown eyes and has multiple large tattoos on his chest and arms.
Since the initial report, investigators said they received information that Treto-Padilla may have traveled to the area of the US‐Mexico border in Texas after the report was filed. Investigators said they do not know if Treto-Padilla is in the United States or Mexico.
“We’re weighing on the side of she is voluntarily absent,” said McClain County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bryan Murrell. “We have no indication right now that she was taken against her will or forced to leave. I believe she may have been planning to leave with him for some time.”
As a result of the information about Velasquez’ fugitive status, the McClain County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the U.S. Marshals Service regarding this case. The marshals are assisting.
“One of her (Treto-Padilla) last known whereabouts through some digital records was in McAllen, Texas,” said Murrell. “Right now, we don’t have any time frame after that. That was on (November) 6. He has ties to Mexico, she’s been to Mexico with him.”
Velasquez should not be approached as he is considered armed and dangerous.
Please call 911 with any information you may have regarding either Treto-Padilla or Velasquez.
