ODESSA- It's a mother's worst fear, knowing that her child has gone missing. But that's what one Arizona woman is dealing with. Her son came to the Basin to find work, but after a night on the town, he was never seen nor heard from again.

The Belin's traveled more than 600 miles searching for answers. They're looking for 23-year-old Jason Belin. He went missing last Thursday after going out to Jaguars Night Club.

"It's really devastating and I can't think. I hope the community will find my son," Jason's mother, Sandra Belin, said.

"It is very hard and I'm just trying to be strong here for my dad and my mom," Jason's sister, Darlene Belin, said.

According to his family, the 23-year-old came to Basin to meet up with friends, who they say were helping him to find work. He apparently got a job and was supposed to start at the beginning of this week, but that didn't happen after he and his friends went out to Jaguars.

His sister says, his friends got into some sort of altercation and was escorted out, but Belin wasn't aware of what happened. When he began searching for them, he too was escorted out and was never seen again. His sister said the surveillance cameras at the club that night were not working.

"Tell us everything you know. Tell us, be honest and tell us everything what happened exactly what happened," Darlene said.

Jason's mother last heard from her son Wednesday of last week and then got a call from his friends on Friday saying they couldn't find him and brought his belongings back to Arizona. His disappearance is now being investigated by the Ector County Sheriff's Office.

"Reports of somebody, last person anybody saw him he was running away from the place. So we're in the process of doing the investigation of what was going on," Ector County Sheriff, Mark Donaldson, said.

The Belin's come from the Navajo reservation in Holbrook, Arizona. Their beliefs is what led them to come here.

"Just want to tell him we love him and we miss him and we just want to take him home. That's all. We love him so much," Darlene said.

"If you see Jason, somewhere, please call we have a number at the bottom of the flyer and J if your watching, please call us," his mother said.

Belin is 5'11" and weighs approximately 190 pounds. He has dark brown eyes and short black hair. Belin was last seen wearing denim jeans, a solid gray T-shirt, black Vans shoes and a black cap.

He was last seen at Jaguars in Odessa on January 24, 2013.
