TUCSON - Elizabeth Breck's disappearance is a mystery to her family, law enforcement and private investigators that have been hired to find her. On Jan. 13, 2019 she went missing.
The mother of two left Sierra Tucson, a residential treatment center offering rehabilitation programs, four days after she checked herself in for a 30-day program for trauma. Breck was never heard from or seen again.
"It's tough. It's been a year," said Christopher Breck, Elizabeth's brother. "She wasn't at Christmas this year and Thanksgiving. Big family holidays are probably the hardest."
Breck would now be 47-years-old. Her family says she loved Catalina State Park and they believe she may have tried to walk there on foot from the facility.
"It was rainy that evening, it dropped down very very cold," Christopher Breck said. "Who knows I just...hope nobody took her and did something to her. I would rather have her succumb to the elements then have something like that happen."
Investigators working Breck's case are calling it a mystery, wondering why or how a beloved Tucson High School teacher and mother of two could just disappear.
"The strangest thing to me is that there is nothing," said George Economidis, a private investigator with Patriot Shield Investigations said. "I mean like she literally just vanished."
Breck's family believes she may had a breakdown causing her to flee the facility with only her I.D. and some cash.
"We had a number of calls from the time she went missing to mid-July of possible sightings," Economidis said. "Followed up on all those with no positive result. They were always explained off as somebody else or somebody that looked like Elizabeth."
If you have any information on Breck's whereabouts, you're asked to call police or 88-CRIME. You can remain anonymous.
