The family of an Arlington woman missing since Tuesday is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.

Maria Arrocha, 77, was last seen by family members about 9 a.m. Tuesday at her home in the 1800 block of Arbor Lane.

Officials have said that Arrocha shows signs of having Alzheimer's disease and has a history of becoming easily confused.

She is described as a Hispanic female with black and gray hair and brown eyes. She is about 5-foot-5 and weighs about 180 pounds.

Arrocha was wearing a black long-sleeve sweater and tan pants when she was last seen, according to reports.

"Arlington police officers continue to distribute flyers that include photographs of Ms. Arrocha, and reach out to law-enforcement partners, hospitals (and) businesses and work closely with volunteers," Tiara Ellis Richard, an Arlington police spokeswoman, said in a news release.

Richard said that anyone who might have given Arrocha a ride, perhaps not realizing her confusion or that she was in distress, is urged to call 911 or the Arlington Police Department's non-emergency dispatch line at 817-459-5600.

"Any bit of information could help us locate Ms. Arrocha and return her to her family," Richard said.
