NH Woman Searches For Mom In California Fires

BOSTON, Mass (WBZ-AM/AP) —  A New Hampshire woman says she and her brother are frantically trying to get information about their 83-year-old mother, who lives in the California town of Magalia near the devastated town of Paradise.

Diane Forsman says Jean Forsman can't walk and is on oxygen. She says: "We're trying to remain hopeful until we get word. 

We don't know what the outcome will be."She and her brother posted on Facebook and Twitter Thursday asking if anyone had seen their mother.

They tried calling 911 and other numbers. They were told that officials had a list of 300 to 400 welfare checks to do. Finally, they got word through Facebook that someone in her neighborhood had picked up a disabled woman but they haven't been able to confirm whether it's their mom.
