The family of missing Miramar mother Vilet Torrez is stepping up the search with a pair of billboards seeking information on her disappearance.

The billboards, which are courtesy of ClearChannel, went up at Okeechobee Road just west of the Palmetto and Southwest 8th Street west of Red Road.

Torrez, 38, hasn't been seen since March 31, and Miramar Police and her family have spent the past four months searching for her.

Authorities suspect foul play and named husband Cid Torrez a person of interest, though he has said he did not see or have contact with his wife on the early morning she disappeared.

Miramar Police divers have been searching local waters for any sign of the mother of three, but haven't had any luck so far. Her family is hoping the billboards can shed some new light on the case.

The billboards feature a photo of Torrez and ask anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
