Killeen Police searching for missing elderly woman.

Officers were notified of a missing 93 year old woman who left the Lions Park Senior Center at 2:50 pm with an unknown male. A family member called officers after they were unable to locate Carmen Vazquez-Cardona at the senior center. Witnesses told the officers that they saw Carmen Vazquez-Cardona and a white male walking in the parking lot of the senior center. The male was approximately 5’6” tall, weighing about 180 lbs, with grey hair and wearing a hat. Carmen and the male were seen getting into a black two door car, possibly a newer model Mazda with a hardtop convertible. The witnesses said that Carmen got in the car as a passenger and the male drove away in an unknown direction.

Carmen Vazquez-Cardona is a Hispanic female, approximately 5’3” tall, weighing about 118 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. Carmen was wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans, and grey/white shoes and had grey or silver purse. Carmen is on medication for Alzheimer’s disease and it is possible she may become confused. She also has other medical conditions that require medications that she did not take with her. Carmen’s family said this is uncharacteristic of her normal behavior.

Anyone who sees Carmen Vazquez-Cardona is asked to contact the Killeen Police Department 254-501-8830 or call 911 immediately.   Our goal is to get Carmen home safely.
