I was always under the impression that the police called the shots in an investigation. This is pretty new to me when I hear it's all up to the family..Proud member of the food police. Fighting CKD one day at a time

Also the police say she has depression?? This is new to the neighborhood people who know her, She always has a smile.
Something else all Christmas decorations are still up. Not at all like Maria. I hope the timeline as to when she went missing is correct.Proud member of the food police. Fighting CKD one day at a time

Where is Tackawanna Street. Is that up near Oxford Circle?
Does Maria have any family members who live nearby?
Does she have her own facebook?

Where does Maria frequent normally? Church? Is she retired?
Does she ever travel?
And how is that neighborhood up there? Can you walk around there?
Does she drive?

There are a couple older people missing in Philly lately, towards the Northeast section. I think this case might be near the same area.
I hope isn't a trend, someone possibly preying on the elderly.

Wow! Thanks for bringing that thread over.Interesting.. Her area is just above Frankford, Behind where the 4 cemeteries meet at Frankford and Cheltenham Before bridge st. terminal. But closer to Harbison Ave. Tackawanna runs from frankford thru Wissinoming all the way to Robbins Ave. There is crime all over the city.
She has really good long time neighbors that look out for each other.
But in the day it's fairly safe to walk around. Most people know her as she always has a smile and will say hello.
No she did not drive. There are bus stops on every other corner to take her where she needed to go.
She is a very active church member and attended with her family each week. Yes she is retired, She only traveled with family.
Why she is not plastered all over the news is beyond me. Someone had to have seen her. She does not facebook. Her family is nearby.Proud member of the food police. Fighting CKD one day at a time

She is a tiny senior, that really is an eye opener! Something to think about!Proud member of the food police. Fighting CKD one day at a time

Actually, I think there was even a 3rd senior who has gone missing. You should read up on some of the other cases for some similarities. It certainly seems like the media underreports missing people, especially older people. Personally, I had an aunt from the area of Wissinoming, in the past, but she passed away a few years ago.
Bus stops have been quite a troublesome area lately in the city, with people getting attacked. Some of these animals (no offense to real animals) have no regard for older people. It sickens me.
Who saw Maria last? Did she ever go to PARX or Sugar House to play the slots?

Here is the other case of an older person from the Northeast area missing.
None of these threads have gotten a lot of publicity on the news. It must be frustrating for the families. I cannot imagine an older person going missing from my own family.

Thank you again, It's heartbreaking not knowing what happened or where she is. I cannot begin to imagine what her boys are feeling. I have tried to reach out to them,to get her listed on namus.And to get the press involved. Perhaps detectives don't want it out there. It's very frustrating.Proud member of the food police.
