Cecilia Huerta Gallegos left work at Saint Francis Nursing Home on Woodlawn Avenue to go see her children at her house on Sunday, July 7, but she was never seen again.

She hasn’t used any credit cards, called anyone or showed up to work again. Family members say her vehicle is sitting in her northwest side driveway at 5600 Southwick Street.

Huerta Gallegos is 5 feet 1 inch, weighs 120 pounds, has brown eyes, curly black hair, and dark complexion.

Her friends and colleagues are concerned that her husband may be involved. Gallegos allegedly told them that she had marital issues and that her husband was violent. Her friends said that Gallegos told them if she went missing to question her husband.

Her husband said she had an affair and took off on him and the kids.

I can't rule out an affair if he treated her like crap but most mothers do NOT flee an abusive relationship without the kids. Would YOU leave your kids home alone with someone who is violent?
 
Ugh, seriously. It's like these men don't even try!!!
She ran off with her lover and left her kids behind!?! Men need to realize no mother, or almost no mother, will take off and leave her kids behind. Most of us love our kids like we love our hand. We need them to live.
I am hoping she's hiding somewhere, and she contacts police. Or that she is at least found.

Volunteers help search for missing woman
Search and rescue is an ugly business.

Fighting the heat and thorn-filled bushes, volunteers spent hours searching for 30-year-old Cecilia Huerta Gallegos, mother of four, who has been missing for nearly a month now.

[...]

The two met during a search for Andreen McDonald, whose body was recently found after being missing for several months.

They wanted to keep up the searches for other victims.

So together, the founded Chain Breakers.

"It's actually founded on behalf of Andreen, but it means to break the chains of domestic violence," said Glass.

A search with few limitations.

"Today we have ATVs, drones, and of course the volunteers that are out here as well," said Green.

Paid for out their own pockets.

San Antonio woman's disappearance is a mystery - Photo Gallery includes 30 photos
As a child, Cecilia Huerta Gallegos nursed injured animals back to health, her sister recalls. As an adult, she’s known as a doting mother and a compassionate nursing assistant who’s gentle with the elderly residents in her care.

It’s not like her to let others worry about her, friends and family say.

[...]

Her younger brother, 26-year-old JD, talked with her on the phone that day.

“She told him that she feared something was going to happen, that she needed to go home and watch her kids,” said ML, 33, one of Cecilia’s sisters.

Her six siblings, who all live in Houston, became very concerned when none of them had heard from her for several days after that last ominous phone call with JD. He asked San Antonio police for a welfare check and when she couldn’t be found, he filed a missing persons report.

Siblings were stunned when police told them Cecilia’s husband, 34-year-old Reyes Huerta Gallegos, had called 911 the morning of July 8 to report his wife had assaulted him in their home. He told officers she then said she was leaving the family and took off with an unnamed man who was waiting in a car outside, according to Margie Lopez, 35, another one of Cecilia’s sisters.

ML and Cecilia’s other siblings don’t believe it.

“On the last day her co-workers saw her, July 7, her long shift was scheduled to end at 11 p.m.”

“Her husband arrived about 6:40 p.m., Rozmiarek said. He said he saw the facility’s security video that shows the husband-wife encounter.”

You can tell that she’s uncomfortable,” Rozmiarek said. “He came very close and she took a few steps back up into the wall.”

“After Huerta Gallegos and her husband talked, he left and she went to the head nurse, explaining she had to leave to check on her children, Rozmiarek said. She left at about 7:20 p.m.”


This whole case worries me a lot. Cecilia was clearly in fear of her husband & it sounds like he was a bully. What a horrible situation for her to be in. Ominous.

Doesn't sound good at all, does it? I wonder if there is video footage of her husband leaving the house with some kind of large container? MOO

Margie Lopez said police have told her video taken the night of July 7 by a security camera Reyes had installed at their house showed Cecilia going in but not coming out.

And...

Police won’t talk about the case, saying only that it’s in the hands of homicide investigators.
 
Equally as importantly not check in with your side of the family or friends you warned???

Noting from this article:

Vehicles believed to be connected to Gallegos are pictured; volunteers said the vehicles were impounded, but if anyone saw them around the time Gallegos was reported missing, give SAPD a call.

ML might want to have personal security/protection with her at all times, for the time being at least. A RO, if requested and granted, is usually worthless. MOO

Very true. Hopefully, the distance between Houston and San Antonio (about three hours) is somewhat of an obstacle but I sure wouldn't count on it if I were her. MOO

Search for missing mother continues


Summary:

Cecelia's husband, 34-year-old Reyes Gallegos, has been arrested. He was booked on assault charges after police say he punched his wife's friend but he hasn't been charged with his wife's disappearance.

Cecelia's friend said she told them that she was having marital problems and that her husband was violent. Her friend said she told them that if she went missing, to question her husband.
 
Hoping for justice and answers for the family of this beautiful young mother. So much hate for people that so selfishly take mommas away from their babies who need them. How swiftly someone ruins an entire family, their own entire family, is so beyond my understanding
