Elderly Woman Missing, Grandson Detained

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -


Corpus Christi investigators continue their search this morning for a missing elderly woman after detaining her grandson who ran from police.

Officers were asked to locate 77-year old, Johanna Christy, yesterday after a concerned call from her son living in San Antonio.

Christy's car was in the drive way, but no one was home.

Officers then located her 27-year old grandson who tried to escape. He was quickly detained.

Senior Officer Kirk Stowers, with the Corpus Christi Police Department, could not say why the 27-year old ran, but is concerned for Christy who has trouble walking.

"The woman is not capable of walking long distances. She wouldn't have gone far without that cane," Stowers said.

Stowers is asking nearby residents and anyone with knowledge of Christy to come forward.
