SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

The San Augustine County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding a 79-year-old woman who was last seen at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning when she left her home to visit her daughter in Tenaha.

According to a San Augustine County Sheriff’s Office narrative, Ruby Lee Price Weathered’s son met with an SACSO sergeant Tuesday afternoon and said that his mother was missing. 

The man told the SACSO deputy that Weathered left her home in San Augustine Tuesday morning to meet her daughter in Tenaha. After meeting up, Weathered and her daughter were supposed to travel together to Tyler. However, Weathered never showed up in Tenaha or Tyler.

Weathered’s son told authorities that his 79-year-old mother is suffering from the early stages of dementia, but she has never gone missing before, the narrative stated. The man also said that he and the rest of his family have been search for Weathered for hours, but they haven’t had any luck locating her.
The SASCO sergeant entered Weathered into the computer as a missing person.

Weathered, who lives in San Augustine, is described as been 5-feet-9 inches tall and about 220 pounds. She was last seen driving a white 2002 Chevrolet pickup with Texas license plates with the number JKR9700.

Anyone with any information about Weathered's whereabouts is urged to call the San Augustine County Sheriff's Office at (936) 275-2424.
