HOUSTON – It has been 50 days since 20-year-old Private First Class Vanessa Guillen was last seen. The family of a missing Fort Hood soldier is renewing their pleas for answers and help in finding her.

When did she go missing?

PFC Guillen disappeared on April 22.

"She had texted her boyfriend that she was going to go into work and she would text back as soon as she could and that text never came back," said her sister, Mayra Guillen.

What has the family learned about her disappearance?

Mayra Guillen says it's been a struggle for the family to get answers from Fort Hood and the United States Army. They are calling for more transparency.

On Wednesday, community activist Cesar Espinosa, executive director of FIEL Houston called on the FBI to take over the investigation.
