Our 4 On Your Side team continues to track developments on the Tierra Blanca Ranch, which is under investigation, accused of abusing some of the troubled teens who live there.

One family tells KOB Eyewitness News 4 that because the boys were so isolated in a remote area of New Mexico, it was hard to stay in touch with their families. One young man who used to live at Tierra Blanca Ranch contacted us asking for help.

Zac Leggett says he and his brother Jon were both at the ranch, but were released at different times.

Now, he has no idea where his brother Jon is.

"I'm concerned because he hasn't gotten in contact with me and my sister, you know, since the program shut down," Zac said.

Jon's family members are anxious to find him. Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact KOB at (505) 764-2453 or news@kob.com.
