By postcard dated October 31, 2018, we notified appellant the time for filing her brief had expired. We directed appellant to file a brief and an extension motion within ten days, cautioning that the failure to file a brief and an extension motion would result in the dismissal of this appeal without further notice. That notice was returned to the Court marked, “RETURN TO SENDER, NOT DELIVERABLE AS ADDRESSED, UNABLE TO FORWARD.” We then attempted to contact appellant by phone but got a recording that the voice mail box was full. Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.1(b) requires an unrepresented party to keep the Court apprised of her current mailing address. See TEX. R. APP. P. 9.1(b). Appellant has failed to do so and has not communicated with the Court since September 25, 2018. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal. TEX. R. APP.
