The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office needs your help in locating Maria Diaz, W/F, 72 year-old, 4’0” tall, 150 lbs., Brown eyes, Grey-Brown hair with an Olive complexion. Mrs. Diaz, who suffers from medical issues and requires daily medication, was last seen at her granddaughter’s home in the 2900 block of Houma Blvd in Metairie, on April 24, 2012, around 2:00 p.m. According to family members, Mrs. Diaz has no vehicle, therefore, it’s believed she wandered away from the Houma Blvd address on foot. Family members have not seen or heard from her since discovering she was missing yesterday.
We do not suspect foul-play in Mrs. Diaz’ disappearance.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Mrs. Diaz (photo attached), is asked to contact Detective Derek Johnson, at 364-5300.
