Search teams continue looking for a South Bend woman tonight.
Vivian Borysiak has been missing since Saturday, and bad weather has hampered search efforts.
While policed are concentrating search efforts at the North Shore Housing complex, where she was last seen, billboards and posters have been scattered around the area.
She's been missing nearly a week, but police tell us Borysiak’s family remains hopeful.
South Bend police Captain, Phil Trent tells us, “They’re nervous. They’re still keeping their spirits up and they’re hopeful that shell be reunited with her family, but you know, its tough on them.”

South Bend police remain hopeful as well.
They tell us Borysiak was well connected in the community, so they’re lots of questions that need to be asked. “A lot of people to ask when did they see her, did she say anything about leaving. We’re far from hitting a wall,” says Trent.

Far from hitting a wall, but unfortunately close to ice.
Divers searched one pond near Borysiak’s apartment yesterday, but had to quit when the equipment stopped working because of the cold.
That search didn’t turn up anything. Leaving police unable to rule anything out.
Borysiak’s neighbors say they're not ruling anything out either.

“It could have been an accident, but it also could have been somebody taking her,” says Kathy Burone, who lives at the same complex as Borysiak.
Burone tells us, the cool temperatures aren’t the only thing that have her scared to go outside...
“As somebody who lives out here and as a woman similar age, you think there go I. You know I have a little dog that I take out, and you think, gosh, could it be anybody.”
