SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The search continues for a Springfield woman, who went missing one year ago.

Kamara Houston said it has been a year since she's seen her mother, Judy Ann Parker. She said Parker went for her morning walk (something she did often) and never came back.

She's hoping the community can help bring her mother home.

"It's a year since she went missing...since she literally vanished," said Houston.

Houston said Parker was last seen on December 30th, 2016, leaving her care home on 11th and R Street in Springfield.

A surveillance camera of a nearby residence shows her walking past the home at about 9:39 in the morning. 

Houston said Parker is 73-years-old and has psychosis, a mental disorder that impairs thoughts and emotions causing a disconnection with external reality.

Houston said this past month has been extremely tough because she was not able to celebrate Parker's birthday or the holidays with her.

"With no leads...no crumbs, we don't know where to start again. We need eyes and memories and hope that some little shred of evidence will come up and we'll find my mom, whether it's good or bad," said Houston.

Parker is 5'2" and has white hair. If you have any information you are asked to call Springfield Police.
