Family of missing woman with Alzheimer's gathers to pray for her return

Maria Llamas, 69, last seen Sunday at Poteet Flea Market

POTEET, Texas – The family of a woman who’s been missing for almost a week is desperate to find her. Family and friends of Maria Llamas, 69, gathered to pray for her return Saturday.

Llamas was last seen Sunday when she wandered away from her husband at the Poteet Flea Market.

Llamas suffers from Alzheimer’s, so her family grows more worried as time passes. They said they are still searching for her and are in need of help from the community.

“We haven’t lost out faith, and we’re going to find her. We’re just waiting for that one phone call that someone’s seen her, that they have her, that she’s had food and water and that she’s OK,” said Margarita Llamas, Maria Llamas’ daughter.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Antonio police at 210-207-7660.
