The 15 year old kid who Angel stole the bike from, is it possible he has "friends" that we're maybe trying to take care of the thief? Is it possible the father told his son to keep his mouth shut and they were fully prepared for the cops to stop by? In other words who were both fathers and sons forms who could have sought retaliation? Anyone checked if they had an Suv?

I was thinking the same thing, if the story about him being chased down is true, it would be a huge a coincidence for the person chasing him to not be in connection with the people he stole the bike from. I hope the police looked into this to be sure.

And about victim blaming, I don't care what he stole, he did not deserve to die. Watching his family on disappeared absolutely broke my heart.

I was just typing wondering if the river was searched but the very end of the episode I was finishing just said it wasn't searched.
It wouldn't suprise me if he was in it.
But then again if the claims of the car following them is true, this case could go any direction.
Esepcially stealing the bike, There is just too many people who it could be.
God what are the chances about the guy who looks exactly like him.

Just rewatched and to me there are 3 possibilities:
A) fell off bridge into river
B) the friend he was with knows something that went down (could be tied to tan Jeep)
C) the folks he stole the bike from had someone retaliate (could be tied to tan Jeep)

The stolen tan Jeep they had fingerprint of known criminal but ruled him out due to him not looking like the guy Angel's friend described. Seems too easily ruled out (also felt the bike folks were too easily ruled out). I think those LE need to do a deep dive into both parties.

Loved Ones Hold Out Hope 9 Years After Hartford Man Went Missing

It's been nine years since Angel Garcia disappeared in Hartford. The 19 year-old vanished while riding a dirt bike in the city.

Tuesday his family, friends and the city leaders came together to plant a tree in his honor as they continue to hope for closure in his case. For Angel’s mother Laura Suazo, the heartbreak of not knowing what happened to her son is still as strong today as when he first disappeared.

“Living everyday of your life wondering, Waking up wondering, going to sleep wondering, everything you do wondering, not knowing, I would wish this on anyone” said Suazo at the tree planting site at the edge of Pope Park.

“This tree planting today is not in memory of Angel, but to maintain hope and hope that Angel is still out there with us and hope that one day we can come up with resolution” said Lt. Paul Cicero of Hartford Police Department where the investigation into Garcia’s disappearance remains active.

Angel’s mother last saw her son in October of 2011. He was riding his dirt bike with friends, split off from the group and hasn’t been seen since. Each year his mother brings together people still hoping to find angel, holding vigil, even releasing photos of what Angel could look like today.

They hope something about this new monument will finally bring answers.

"There’s a mother that’s not giving up. She’s doing whatever it takes to bring the attention that her son is still out there” said Suazo.

Anyone with any information about Angel Garcia’s disappearance is asked call the Hartford Police Department. You can submit information 860-722-TIPS anonymously.

I heard the Police cannot search the Connecticut river because it is too dark and murky.... Which makes no sense to me. How can a dark and murky river be the reason why law enforcement won't search it for a missing person or body?

Sad case. I saw this featured on Disappeared late last year. I agree that AG could have been a victim of foul play due to the bike issue, as mentioned in the episode.

However, IMHO it's also very possible/plausible that he was crossing over the train tracks?! over the bridge on his bike, lost control, fell into the water, and drowned - this was also suggested in the episode. Not sure if AG was able to swim, but even if he was - if he lost control of the bike & became injured, he could have still drowned.

We have seen cases where cars & occupants are found in the water years after they've been declared missing (or never found at all, but suspected of being in the water). And, when compared to even a mid-sized car - a bike & a person would be much harder to spot in the water....especially if they're either at the very bottom of a deep river and/or have been swept away downriver.
