For nearly two months, the family of Graciela Sepulveda Juarez had been searching all over for their loved one and received no answers on her whereabouts.

Her three sons posted flyers with her picture and even contacted local authorities to report a missing person; however, they believed she was in custody at a Laredo Detention Center.

On Monday, LULAC committee member Julie Contreras confirmed the tragic news of Graciela’s passing.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection found Graciela’s body on the Southside of Laredo near the river.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the family pay with funeral expenses.

Graciela will be truly missed by her family, grandchildren, and friends.

She is survived by her three sons who are inviting the community to a prayer vigil where their mother’s body was found.

The event will take place on Wednesday night, at 11 a.m. at 1400 Riddle Street.
