Earlier: The Hays County Sheriff’s Office received a call on June 27, 2016 at approximately 8 p.m. for a missing person in the Jacob’s Well Park (Jacob’s Well Natural Area) off of Mt. Sharp Road in Wimberley, Texas.

The missing person has been identified as Criselida Alvizu, a white female, born Sept. 20, 1935. Alvizu and her family were visiting the area from Donna, Texas. She left the family and followed a trail back to their vehicle due to her slower gait and not wanting to make them wait for her. They followed a few minutes later. Upon the family’s arrival to the vehicle, they discovered she had not yet arrived. They immediately began looking for her and notified park employees who began a search. Search crews were mobilized and have been looking for her throughout the night. The search has included K-9 units, air support, Texas Search and Rescue, Wimberley Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office personnel. The search is continuing.

She was last seen wearing a black and white leopard print top, black capri pants and water shoes.

She is not carrying a phone or identification.

If you have any information or have seen Alvizu, please contact the Hays County Sheriff’s Office at 512-393-7896. It is believed due to her age and her medical concerns she is in grave or immediate danger.
