HOUSTON — Family members of a 17-year-old whose body was found floating in the Houston Ship Channel say they are still searching for answers.

“All of our questions have not been answered,” said Antonio Saldivar’s aunt, Lucy Garcia. “We know he wasn’t alone, and we know he didn’t do this to himself.”

The junior at Houston Can Academy disappeared on Valentine’s Day while going to his friend’s house to give her a gift. His car was found crashed into concrete beam early the next morning at the intersection of Navigation and Harrisburg. His shoes were still in the front seat.

Family members want to know what happened to him and how he got from his car into the ship channel.

Houston police have not ruled out foul play, but said they're not ready to call it murder either.
