The New Life Assembly off of French Road is home base for those searching for Robin Leys.

“We're on day 6,” said Addabell Rodriguez, Leys’ sister.

Since last Friday, Volunteers have scoured the Buffalo area for the 61-year-old, who deals with dementia and Alzheimer’s. But Leys' sister says they need more help.

“Donations for flyers, because we could keep those flyers going because we've put out 5,000 flyers already,” said Rodriguez.

The family is also asking for water and food for to give to volunteers.

According to police and the family, people have reported seeing Leys following her disappearance.
It's believed she is not wearing glasses and may not have her hair in a ponytail any more.

“Well what we know is that all the sightings that we've been getting and confirmations have all been in West Seneca and the Lackawanna area,” said Rodriguez.

Tuesday, there were reports of Leys near the Botanical Gardens. These sightings give her family members fuel to keep searching, but they say it's hard not imagine the worst.

Anyone who'd like to help search for Leys on Thursday, people are meeting the New Life Assembly in Depew at 10am.
