Lillian High's Family Expresses Gratitude to Authorities and Volunteers
FRIENDSWOOD, TX – Lillian High was an active, hardworking and kind 82 year old woman who went missing on October 3, 2010. Lillian was scheduled to work that day at the bank she had worked at for years prior to her disappearance. When she didn't arrive at work, family members became worried and sought help from law enforcement and other agencies.
Today, media reported that a vehicle matching the description of the car Lillian was driving that day was located in a pond near her regular route to work.
Lillian's family would like to express their gratitude to the Houston Police Department for their commitment and dedication to finding their mother. Along with HPD, the family also thanked volunteers, churches and different agencies including the Laura Recovery Center and Texas Equusearch for the assistance given during this difficult time. They are grateful to the thousands who displayed, posted, and distributed Lillian's picture in hopes of a different outcome.
Although the outcome is not what the family had hoped for, they receive some comfort in now knowing where their mother is. Given the timing of this discovery, the family has not yet made funeral arrangements. The family would like to take time now to reflect on the memories of their mother and begin planning for services. If you have questions, please contact Dawn Davis, Sr. Case Manager, at the Laura Recovery Center - 281-785-1268.
