Police continue to search for an elderly Denver City woman tonight. Her family says it's hard not to fear the worst after a week of not knowing where -- or how -- she is.
64-year-old Julia Weir McCullogh -- or Judy as she goes by -- was last seen visiting a friend in Hobbs, New Mexico March 18th.
Her daughter Keri Fenton says even though her mother has gone away before -- this time, it's different.
Keri Fenton: "I'm afraid she got out in the middle of somewhere, ran out of gas... she also has a horrible sense of direction and apparently in the couple of weeks to a month prior to this there'd been, I've since found out since she became missing that she was having some periods of confusion."
Judy's family has been searching nonstop. Keri says the family's canceled all but one credit card in order to track her, but otherwise her mother has no money.
Fenton: "I don't have a good feeling about it, I mean I just can't see my mom being gone for this long without contacting somebody."
Judy was last seen driving from Hobbs to her home in Denver City in a cream-colored 2005 Chrysler 300. She's described as about 5'5, between 130 and 160 pounds, with dark brown hair and green eyes.
After a week with no word from her mother it's hard not to fear the worst, but Keri says she hopes some answers will come soon.
Keri: "If for some odd reason she's got it in her head she just wanted to go away, all we want to do is just make sure she's okay, we would just appreciate some sort of leads to find out what happened to her."
If you have any information for police or the family of Judy, call the Denver City Police at 592-3518 or the Lea County Sheriff's Department at 575-396-3611.
