It’s been one long and gutt wrenching search for 20 year old Kyle Rugg.

Monday morning they’re out searching again at the last place (Lake Livingston ) the Katy resident was seen with a close friend.

Kyle’s family has gone from store to store in Katy and even searched the Bayous in Harris County since he disappeared on March 4th…That’s  after they say he went to Lake Livingston with a close friend. Kyle’s  family says once there he then left with two guys he recently met at a party.

Judy Rugg, Kyle’s mother, says, “the weather got bad and they decided to leave Mike stayed Kyle got in the car with these friends to come back…cuz Kyle seemed to know them. ”


Lake Livingston was the last place Rugg, who was living with that friend Mike, was seen.

Rugg left his vehicle, a 2003 Silver Hyundai Elantra, here at Mike’s apartment in Katy the day of the trip to Lake Livingston…but after Kyle disappeared on March 4th so did the car.

Kyle’s brother says, “so, we know that they took his keys and something happened to him when he was with those two guys but somehow somebody moved the vehicle.  ”

Rugg’s mother and brother say Kyle had plans to go to welding school and worked from time to time in construction…but they say this disappearance is not like the young man who wanted to be self sufficient and independent.

“He has never disappeared before like I said if he wasn’t with us he was with his friends,” says Judy.

A search is underway at Lake Livington this morning headed by Equusearch and Kyle’s family.
