TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - An emotional cry for help from the family of Maria Dolores Escobedo.

The family met on Tuesday, at the main library downtown, in a plea for help from the public to find the man accused of killing their loved one. They had flyers that they plan to hand out, to see if it can lead to any clues to where Mario Jesus Dorame could be.

According to the Tucson Police Department Dorame is the suspect in the murder of Escobedo, but he has been missing since police found the 52 year-old women dead inside his home last week.

"She was taken from us too soon and we are trying to come together were asking for help we are asking for support," said Escobedo's family.

Escobedo's family said she was about giving back to the community.  She lived in Marana and raised her four kids there, she even volunteered at the food bank.

Her family has a message for the man accused of taking their loved one from them.

"Turn yourself in man. You're a monster what you did, you don't deserve to be out there in the public."

Anyone with information about the suspect or this case is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
