Local mother disappears from home

One year later, family says they will continue search

SAN ANTONIO – Susana Perez was 36-years-old when she told her children she was going to the store, but never returned home.

Now, over a year later, her family says they will continue their search for answers.

"We don't know where she may be, what's going on with her all this time," said Dora Cazares, Susana's sister. "It's not like her to vanish, and not call for her children, or to contact the family and let us know where she's at.

With little information on her case, and no witnesses who have come forward, her family says it's been a difficult journey.

"She vanished during the holidays, in December," said Susana's sister, Frances Salinas. "There was 2 of her kids birthdays in December, and then her birthday too, and then New Year's and Christmas. It was sad for us."

While the police continue their search and investigation, Susana's family says they are holding out hope that someone will come forward with information.

"If anybody out there knows anything about her, or has seen her, please give us a call," said Salinas. "We are welcoming her with open arms, that's what we want. We just want her to come back."

Susana is described as a Hispanic woman, about 5 feet 1 inch tall, weighing 110 pounds.

Her family said she had an injury to her right knee, and walks with a limp.

Anyone with information is urged to call the San Antonio Police Department's Missing Persons Unit at 210-207-7660.
