LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Tuesday marks one month since 30-year-old Maegan Hembree went missing. Hockley County Sheriff's deputies say they are continuing to follow tips leading their investigation to east Texas.

The Smyer resident was last seen on the evening of February 26th when she was on her way to a friend's home, but family members say Maegan never made it.

About a week after her disappearance, police found the car Maegan was driving at a west Lubbock apartment. Since then, the Texas Rangers have joined the case.

Captain Ray Scifres with Hockley County says his investigators have been traveling to east Texas to follow up on leads, but because of the sensitivity of the case, he could not reveal further details. He also says police are making a timeline of events leading up to her disappearance.

As time passes, Scifres says they have to look at the possibility that Maegan may not be alive. "We hope that's not the case," Scifres said. "Our ultimate goal is to bring her home to her mother and son."

Scifres says investigators are constantly in contact with Maegan's family and that they will do everything they can to find her.

The following is a description of Maegan:

- 30 years old

- Approximately 4'11" tall and weighing approximately 120 lbs

- Has a Houston Astros star tattoo on the back of her neck, a tattoo on her left shoulder and biohazard tattoo on her lower left leg

- Last seen wearing pajama pants and a hooded sweatshirt

Anyone with information about Maegan is urged to contact investigators at the Hockley County Sheriff's Office.
