ATLANTA -- An Atlanta family spent their Thanksgiving searching for a missing relative.
Lucilla Harris has been missing since last Saturday. She is 72 years old, and relatives say she has bouts of dementia.
As she has for the last several days now, her niece Chilinda Willis was back driving through her old northwest Atlanta neighborhood.
It's the community where she grew up, with Harris helping to raise her. She describes her aunt as a second mom.
Now, she is in a race against time. Harris hasn't been seen for nearly a week, and each passing hour brings the family greater reason to worry.
"She's never been gone more than a couple of hours," Willis said of her aunt. "I can always pick up the phone and call her. She's 72. She doesn't like to be out after dark; she doesn't like to be out in the rain; she doesn't like to be out when it's really cold. So for her to be gone for this long is very unusual."
