The Arrocha family isn't giving up, ten days after 77-year-old Maria Arrocha disappeared from her east Arlington home. A statewide Silver Alert has expired, but Arlington police and Arrocha's relatives say they're doing all they can to find her.
The woman, who has Alzheimer's, disappeared from the 1800 block of Arbor Lane about 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Her family says she wouldn't be able to find her way home, or tell anyone where she lived.
Her family has increased the reward for information to $3,000. They're distributing fliers all over Arlington in hopes someone may have seen Maria.
"Your mother is the most important piece of the family," said son Martin Arrocha. "So when you miss your mother, especially under these circumstances, it's very difficult to [enjoy] the holidays."
Arlington police have assisted with extensive ground searches in areas around Arrocha's home. They also distributed the fliers to bus drivers and postal workers who patrol neighborhoods regularly. If police get enough leads, they may be able to renew the statewide Silver Alert.
If you know anything about Arrocha, please call 911 or Arlington Police at 817-459-5600.
