Missing 22-year-old's family pleads for help

On Sunday Alma Del Real's family took to the streets of South Bend to look for Alma and raise awareness about her disappearance.

Police said she was dropped off at her home on Ewing St. in South Bend on April 12th. She hasn't been seen since.

Alma Del Real's aunt, Gabriella Del Real attended South Bend's 150th birthday Torch Walk wearing a shirt with Alma's picture on it.

Gabriella said, “Is she dead? Is she alive? It's just... We're going crazy.”

She said they've been searching the parks every day for her niece.

Gabriella said, “Our family is so desperate to find her. We don't know anything. We don't have any leads. We don't know where she's at. We don't know if she's ok!”

Alma went missing just over three weeks ago.

Gabriella  said, “Please bring her back. We want the police and everyone to help us please! We're asking you begging you to help us bring her back!”

With tears streaming down her face, Alma's grandma said in Spanish that she wouldn't wish the pain she feels on anyone.

Maria Del Real said it's a tough week because Alma's mom was denied a Visa to come to the United States from Mexico to help search for her daughter.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can send them a tip that leads them to Alma Del Real.
