Family Searches for Missing Silver Springs Woman

By  | 

Nearly two weeks after she was last seen, the fate of a 73 year old Silver Springs woman is still unknown.

Peggy Herlacher was last seen July 22nd. Two days later her grandson, 22 yearold James Masterson, was arrested in Sacramento driver her car. Investigators say he also had her credit cards and jewelry, but he's saying nothing about what happened to her.

A motorist reported seeing someone who may have been Masterson parked on Highway 95 Alternate north of Silve Springs the day she disappeared.

Although authorities searched the area and found nothing, Herlacher's family, frustrated at the lack of news, decided to launch their own search Wednesday, asking for volunteers to help.

Masterson is being held in Sacramento on a variety of charges including possession of heroin.
