    Details of Disappearance

    Llamas was last seen at the Poteet Flea Market in the 12200 block of State Highway 16 south in San Antonio, Texas on November 20, 2016. She was there with her husband. Llamas told her husband she didn't like the music playing and wanted to leave. On the way to the parking lot, he stopped to look at a display; when he turned around, Llamas was gone. The surveillance cameras in the area showed her walking towards another exit, out through the parking lot and out the entrance gate to the highway. She has never been heard from again. On December 10, three weeks later, her purse was found wrapped around a tree in Leon Creek, near the flea market.

    Llamas has a history of wandering away, but before she'd always been found safe within an hour or two. Although she'd lived in the San Antonio area for more than forty years, because of her illness, she had come to believe she was young again and lived with her parents on their ranch in rural Mexico. It's possible Llamas is trying to return to her parents, who had been deceased for over a decade by the time she disappeared. Foul play is not suspected in her case, but it remains unsolved.
