Closure may be coming for one San Antonio family, desperately searching for their loved one. Investigators have now identified a person of interest in the disappearance of Pauline Diaz, who went missing from a Southeast side H.E.B. four months ago.

"We are no longer looking for Pauline Diaz the person," commented Charlie Parker, a private investigator hired by Pauline's family. "We are looking for her remains."

Disappearance Remains Unsolved

A devoted mother and grandmother, Pauline Diaz was loved by her family and friends.

The 63-year-old was an employee at H-E-B, and on the afternoon of Dec. 7, 2010, was last seen leaving her place of work. In the months that followed, search teams have continued to look for her, but without success.

Charlie Parker, who is the private investigator working Diaz's case, said Diaz's husband could be a person of interest in her disappearance.

"They were in the middle of a divorce," said Parker. "She had left him and, like a lot of murders, people are in the middle of a divorce."

Could this be Pauline Diaz?


I believe this is near where she worked.

01-03-2015, 05:17 PM
It sure is close. 0.5 miles from the HEB to that area. Change this to walking directions. It is shorter to walk it than drive it. Now it says 0.9 but depending where you put the marker for the base.
