It’s been a week since Houston resident Tiffany Robinson last heard from her son — a week since anyone has, as far as she knows — and she’s desperate to bring him back home, outlets report.

Her son, 25-year-old Taylour Gallardo Young, disappeared during his lunch break on Dec. 9, Robinson said in a Facebook post.

Surveillance video captured his car at a Capital One bank off South Voss Road about 12:10 p.m., and his phone was later found in bushes behind the bank, near an ATM, Robinson said. There has been no other sign of him, despite his mother’s searching, pleas on social media and efforts from Houston police.

A graduate of Sam Houston State University, Young works in accounting, Robinson told KPRC.

“Taylour has a routine, and the routine is to get up in the morning, walk my dog, work, come home on my lunch break, walk my dog, either take a nap with my dog or play video games and go back to work,” she told the outlet.

Robinson told KTRK her son is quiet and humble. It’s hard to imagine someone would hurt him, Robinson said, but with what few clues there are, she’s fearing the worst.

“I know something happened, and I just feel like he is in danger. It’s not like (Young) to not call me, my sister, or anybody in our family,” she told the outlet.

The emotional toll on Young’s family is staggering, but Robinson says she’ll bear it for as long as it takes.

“I don’t have the option to be weak,” Robinson told KTRK. “I have my moments where I break down and cry. I have my moments when I don’t want to get out of bed, but I can’t. That’s not how my child knows me.”

Young is described as 5’11” and weighs 160 pounds, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety bulletin.
