MISSING: Angel Garcia , 19 Hartford CT

if seen, or info, call the Hartford Police Dept. at (860) 757-4236 ....


PRESS RELEASE:  July 22, 2012

The family of missing Angel Garcia is now working with the nonprofit organization, LostNMissing Inc., to aid them in their search for their son, Angel Garcia. 

Angel Garcia went missing on October 21, 2011 while out riding his red Honda dirt bike.  Garcia loves riding the homemade trails in Hartford, CT along  the eastern border and this was a common hobby. However, all changed on that Friday when Garcia went riding with a friend and it was reported that they somehow became separated and Angel did not make it home.  There has not been any activity on his bank records, cell phone and no contact made to his parents, family or friends.  This is very concerning as Angel is especially close with his mom and dad whom he spoke with often every day. Angel has a very large close knit family and a lot of friends. He would not go without making contact. His motor bike is also still missing.

Searches have been conducted and an ongoing investigation is taking place.  LostNMissing Inc will be organizing a "Shining Hope" event to be scheduled on August 26, 2012 in which they will call upon volunteers from the community to help hang missing posters and release balloons of hope for Angel.  In October the group is planning a one-year community event to further aid in awareness, if he has not been located by that time.  The group has rolled out a website at and will have continued updates. Information regarding a reward can be found at the website, as well.

The Hartford Police ask that If anyone has information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact the Hartford Police - Detectives Division at (860) 757-4236, or 860-757- 4242. You may request that your tip be anonymous.

Volunteers are needed for a community search this Saturday, more than two weeks after 19-year-old Hartford, CT resident, Angel Garcia disappeared.
Following a meeting with Garcia's family this week, Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra and Police Chief Daryl K. Roberts announced their intentions to organize a search party as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Angel.
"Volunteers are being asked to gather at the Tower Avenue entrance to Keney Park by 9:30 a.m. on Saturday," Segarra said. "While I know we, as a community, continue to grapple with the loss of power resulting from the recent storm, I hope individuals can find a way to contribute some of their valuable time to join Angel's family and friends to assist in this search."
