Nearly one year after a Hartford man went missing, there is still no sign of him.
Angel Garcia, 19, disappeared while riding a red dirt-bike in Colt Park on Oct. 21. And now, his parents are trying to keep his case from going cold.
"There is no way to describe that emotion," said Angel's father Ralph Garcia. "They are so heart wrecking."
His parents believe that Angel Garcia would have told them or his girlfriend where he was going.
"It's been the worst nightmare," said Ralph Garcia.
Air, land and water searches have been conducted. His bank accounts have not been touched and his cell phone and dirt bike, which are believed to been stolen, have never turned up.
"We're keeping the faith and doing these vigils to remind people he's still out there missing," Ralph Garcia said.
Right before Angel Garcia went missing, an incident did occur.
"There was someone chasing him, and a couple friends, some guys in a truck, gray Cherokee," Ralph Garcia said. "Other than that, he had no enemies."
The family along with the nonprofit organization LostNMissing will be holding a vigil for Angel Garcia on Saturday at 5 p.m. at Colt Park.
"I'm keeping faith maybe he's still with us," Ralph Garcia said. "I have to unless proven otherwise."
Hartford police said the investigation is ongoing.
