Friday morning the Hockley County Sheriff's Office issued a Missing Persons Alert for 30-year-old Maegan Hembree of Smyer.

Her sister, Jill Cantu, says she last talked to Maegan on February 26th around 6 p.m.

"She sounded fine. She just wanted to come see me, but I wasn't at home," Jill said.

Later that day, Jill says Maegan had plans to stop by a friends', but she never made it. The following day her mother called the Hockley County Sheriff's Office and reported Maegan missing.

"Yesterday and today I've just been beside myself. I don't know… I just hope it's ok. I don't know what she could have gotten into. This is not like her," Jill said.

Jill says records show Maegan hasn't used her cell phone since early Wednesday morning. But even more unlike her, Jill says Maegan would never leave her 5-year-old son Aiden.

"He's a smart little boy. He understands something is wrong," Jill said.

Over the next few days, Jill and family plan to pass out flyers with Maegan's information.

The following information has been sent out statewide: 

-Maegan Hembree
