When he did not return, they got worried and asked his brother to check if he was still in their aunt's home. He did not find his younger brother there.

They went to a TV station to alert everyone on who might have seen him, but they were led to radio stations to air their side.

One of the most important things to note about Marvin is that he is deaf-and-mute, but that doesn't mean that he had no friends because of his disability.

Ernesto claimed that his son had a lot of friends whom he played with. However, he stopped going to school and only reached up to third grade.

Have you seen Marvin anywhere? Please let KAMI know if you did in the comments! Even clues are highly appreciated.
