If you've seen 50-year-old Maria Chagolla call the po-po.
A Peoria woman is missing and cops need your help finding her.

Maria Delores Chagolla, 50, was last seen dropping off her adult son about 9 a.m. yesterday in the area of 8700 West Butler Drive in Peoria. She never made it home and hasn't been heard from since.

In a lot of these types of cases, the missing person is often senile, or a drug addict, or a senile drug addict. Chagolla, Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef tells New Times, is neither.

Chagolla cares for a 7-year-old girl and her family says for her to just vanish is very out of the ordinary.

Chagolla is described as a Hispanic female, 4-foot-10, 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black sweater with horizontal stripes, and black and grey dress pants.

The car, in which she was last seen, is a 2003 tan Chevy Suburban with Arizona license plate W/C ECN60.

If you've seen Chagolla, or no where she might be, call the Peoria Police Department at 623-773-8311.

I think to give this opinion is unacceptable: "... missing person is often senile, or a drug addict, or a senile drug addict." Once an idea is put in people's minds, even if it's a generality, people automatically think that this is true about Mrs. Chagolla. That's rubbing salt into the wounds of her family and casting derogatory insinuations onto Mrs. Chagolla's reputation. Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef should make a public apology to the family.


The Chevy Surburban she was driving is a favorite model to transport illegals. She was probably carjacked for her SUV and the criminals maybe headed south towards Tuscon. I am just speculating a likely scenario. Meanwhile she is in our prayers.

Hmmmm.... seems there is another Chagolla living in Peoria... I wonder if he knows Maria...

I hope she is found to be fine.


He stated at the end of the sentence that Chagolla was neither.
