Missing Arlington woman has been found; she’s safe, her mother says

A young Arlington mother who had not been seen since early Saturday has been found, her mother said Tuesday.

Betty Arciba said that she received a telephone call from authorities at about 2 a.m., saying her 26-year-old daughter, Caitlin Mae Alford, had been found and that she was safe.

“They told me she was in a hospital,” Arciba told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in a Tuesday morning telephone interview.

Arciba said she was not given any other details.

Arlington police on Tuesday also did not provide any other information.

“She was located safe and not a victim of a crime,” said Arlington police Sgt. Karen Standback in a Tuesday email.

Alford had last been seen early Saturday at Diamond Jim’s, 305 N. Great Southwest Parkway, in Arlington.

“She had worked at the Elks Lodge in Arlington and got off early Saturday,” Arciba said. “She went over to Showdown in Arlington for a bit, and that’s where she met a friend. She got that friend and her husband to take her to Diamond Jim’s.”

Showdown Saloon is at 2019 S. Cooper St. in Arlington.

Alford’s family filed a missing person report on Sunday after her boyfriend and family members had not heard from the Arlington woman.
