A Tulare County woman is now hoping you will help her find her loved ones, who have been missing for more than two weeks.

Evelyn and Jesus Godines, and their three children ages 1, 2, and 3 were last seen on January 19th.

Elba Enriquez says she's holding out hope her daughter and family are fine.

She says, "they didn't say anything. There was no trip planned. They did plan to move. They were looking for another home."

The Godines family lives in Plainview, a town about 20 miles southeast of Visalia.

Enriquez says that as far as she knows, her daughter and son-in-law had no disagreements with anyone.

The two work at the Visalia Swap Meet, selling t-shirts and jackets.

Enriquez checked their home, and says nothing looked out of the ordinary.

"Everything was in order. Their TV's, computer, clothing. Even their blankets were there," she says.

Tulare County Sheriff's Detectives are now pitching in.

They say the family is believed to be driving a silver Honda Odyssey.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of the Godines family, you are urged to call the Tulare County Sheriff's Department hotline at 1-800-808-0488.

Detectives are also in the process of checking any banking activity that could lead them to the family.
