Peoria Police Looking for Missing Woman: 50-Year-Old Maria Chagolla

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.
