Juan “Diesel” Morel’s daughter has been missing for close to two days, the superstar bodybuilder said on his Instagram.

The former IFBB New York Pro champion said his 16-year-old daughter Destiny, who has not been seen since July 10, is either in Hollis, Queens or East New York, Brooklyn. He’s asked anyone with information to contact him, or a police detective called Detective Denis, whose phone number he put in the social media post.

A number of fellow bodybuilders—from Kai Greene to Sadik Hadzovic—have reposted Morel’s plea for help. Destiny was last seen in Deer Park, Suffolk County, Morel said.
