The truck was found abandoned in a motel parking lot, Channel 2 Action News reported.
“We processed the vehicle, and we did our due diligence to try to identify the blood,” police Lt. Ricardo Vazquez said at a news conference Friday. “But at this point in time I can’t comment on the amount of blood that was in the vehicle.”
Cruz is described as 5-foot-9, 230 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, police said. He was last seen wearing bluejeans, gray tennis shoes, green hat and a checkered shirt.
