HONOLULU (KHNL) - Nearly a year-and-a-half ago, a beloved Oahu woman disappeared without a trace. Now, members of her large family are pleading for your help in locating her.

The missing woman, Roxanne Lacson, has 11 children and eight grandkids. Family members say they're desperate to find her.

Tehya and Kalai are cousins. Both were born two months ago. They've never met their grandmother, Roxanne Lacson, 45, who vanished in August 2007.

"She's always there for family gatherings, get-togethers. She's always there," Keola Lacson, missing woman's son, said. "So it's not like my mom just to up and disappear."

Family members have spent more than a year scouring Oahu's Leeward Coast. They say prior to her disappearance, Lacson was living a transient life, staying with friends or at the beach.

"She calls every two weeks, at least a month or every so often to let us know she's ok," Rose Lacson, missing woman's daughter, said. "Thanksgiving came by. Christmas went by. We haven't heard from her. We haven't seen her, and that's when we knew something was out of the ordinary."

Rose Lacson says she gave her mother a ride to a home in Makakilo, so her mother could see her boyfriend, and hasn't heard from her since.

"We've been mourning," Rose Lacson said.

"We miss her a lot," Keola Lacson said. "We really miss her."

"We had CRU looking for her. We had the parks details out looking for her," Sgt. Kim Buffett, Crimestoppers, said. "And at this point, we've exhausted all options."

Investigators say they haven't ruled out foul play.

"She has 11 children and we love her dearly," Rose Lacson said. "We just want her to come home safely."

The missing woman has a rose tattoo on her thigh and a heart tattoo on her hip.

If you have any information about this case, call Honolulu police.
