(KLFY) – The family of a missing veteran is hoping to find him in time for his son’s first Christmas.

20-year-old Jared Chavis of Jeanerette, Louisiana disappeared Jan. 12.

According to his family, he was last seen on Westheimer near Fondren in Houston, Texas.

His father, Willie Smith, said he was sitting in the back of a car during a road rage shooting and hasn’t been seen since. 

Chavis had been in Houston for just two months, Smith said. 

He left the Jeanerette area for Houston to pursue an information technologies degree online and was working for a satellite dish installer.

Chavis’s son is now 7 months old.
