On Monday evening around 6:23 p.m., deputies from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department San Xavier District responded to the 9000 block of West Delfina Drive to a report of a missing child.

They learned that 11-year-old Larry Avila, had not returned home from school. He is a student of Valencia Middle School where he was last seen this afternoon. Deputies have worked closely with officials of the Tucson Unified School District, but so far have been unsuccessful in locating Larry Avila.

He is described as a Hispanic male, skinny, approximately 4’3” tall, brown hair, brown eyes. He was last seen wearing his school uniform, a blue shirt and brown shorts.

Anybody with information on the whereabouts of Larry Avila is asked to call 911.

About 50 police officers spent Monday night searching the southwest side of town.

Avila is not the first child to go missing this year. Six-year-old Isabel Celis went missing earlier this year, and has yet to be found.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
