The family of missing Angel Garcia, of Hartford, held a missing awareness event for their son who has been missing for two years.  The anniversary vigil was sponsored by LostNMissing Inc., a 501c(3) Nonprofit out of New Hampshire that has ass

isted the family since he became missing, Hartford Communities That Care and Angel’s family.

Members of the Hartford Police attended as well as provided the service of fingerprinting children for identification safekeeping. Over 70 attended the Event.  The gathering of community members enabled them to obtain hand outs on safety as well as various speakers who gave tips on safety.  A free luncheon of pizza, sandwich roll ups, cookies, soda and coffee was enjoyed by all. Laura Otero, Angel’s mother stated “We thank everyone who has attended and hope that everyone takes a missing poster of Angel to hang in the community. Many are not aware that he is still missing, he is loved and we need our son.”  Ralph Garcia, Angel’s father, echoed the same sentiments and further added “If anyone has any information, we ask that you please contact authorities.” The Smolinski family of Naugatuck, CT also attended to provide support to the Garcia family. Their son, William “Billy” Smolinski has been missing for nine years.
