8 Years Later: Vigil Held to Commemorate Disappearance of Missing Hartford Man

Family and friends of missing Hartford man Angel Garcia are holding a vigil to commemorate eight years since his disappearance.

Garcia went missing on Oct. 21, 2011, then 19, and was last spotted on a stolen red dirt bike near Colt Park.

The vigil is taking place from 2 to 6 p.m. at Colt Park on Wethersfield Avenue in Hartford.

"We will be doing a balloon release with his picture in hopes that the balloons will travel far enough not only to get people's attention, but also hoping for a miracle that someone will see his picture and recognize him," Angel's mom Laura Suazo said.

Friends and family are still praying for Angel's safe return.

"We still don't have a lead or anything that will help us bring Angel home," Suazo said.

Police said there are no new developments and they still maintain constant communication with the family.
