SAN ANTONIO - Six years after the disappearance of Pauline Diaz, her family continues to search for clues. They hold a vigil every year to mark her disappearance.

Every Dec. 7, in a small spot in front of the H-E-B where she was last seen, her family gathers to mark a somber anniversary.

“It’s a long, hard struggle for all of us, not having her here with us,” said said Juanita Diaz, Pauline Diaz’s daughter.

Diaz was last seen in 2010 leaving the H-E-B at Southeast Military Drive and Goliad Road. It was a place and a job she loved.

“She worked at the tortillas. She loved making the tortillas. She made tortillas at home, and she made them here. She just loved cooking,” Juanita Diaz said.

Juanita Diaz said her mother loved her family dearly and would never disappear on her own.

The case is now at a standstill.

“We’re hoping that this year we get some new information. We want to continue on and move on with the case. We want to help," Juanita Diaz said.

Juanita Diaz is also asking for help for help for the families of others with missing loved one. She invited them to attend the vigil in the hope that more clues are called in.

"It is not just my mom that is missing. There are other people that have been missing, and we're going to include them as well. And maybe someone out there knows about their family and they can get closure, just as we want closure ourselves,” Juanita Diaz said.

There is a $20,000 reward in this case. Anyone with information on Pauline Diaz’s case or any missing person’s case is asked to call 210-224-7867.
