Medina was reportedly last seen late Tuesday night in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. He could be driving a white semi-truck with an Acevedo Trucking logo out of Stockton. No license plate was given.

It's unclear where Medina could be headed.

Authorities say Ariana was last seen wearing gray pajama pants with stars and a gray shirt over a pink short-sleeve shirt with guitar and star graphics.
