(Las Vegas, NV) — A family, still mourning the death of their matriarch barely two months ago, is now pleading for the return of her ashes.

Carmen Arzave passed away in February. She is survived by 11 children and 26 grandchildren.

One of her children returned home, near Charleston Boulevard and Lindell Road, on Wednesday April 2 to find the door to the house had been broken down.  Some jewelery was missing along with a wooden box containing Arzave’s ashes.

Arzave’s grandaughter, Maricela Caballero tells KXNT, “My family is devastated. We need the peace of mind the box is still out there, it’s safe, and there is a possibility we can get it back.”

The box is cherry wood with inlay work on the top and front and a gold lock plate.  The family thinks it may have been mistaken for a jewlery box.

They are hoping the box will be returned.  If you have any information, you’re asked to e-mail the family at returncarmenhome@gmail.
