He is described as a Hispanic male, brown hair, brown eyes, 5’04, 110 lbs. Eric does have ties to the immediate Tyler area. The sheriff's office also warns that anyone who harbors a child and is criminally negligent about whether the child is younger than 18 years of age and has voluntarily left home without the consent of a parent or guardian, can be charged with Harboring a Runaway, a Class A Misdemeanor.
