Longmont’s Rita Gutierrez-Garcia Has Now Been Missing for a Month

April 18, 2018

It’s been one month since Rita Gutierrez-Garcia went missing while celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with friends and family in downtown Longmont.

Gutierrez-Garcia, 34, was last seen walking to a parking lot behind 3′s Bar at 333 Main St. around 2:30 a.m. on March 18.

Other people in the lot said they saw her talking on the phone and heard her saying she would get a ride with someone else, according to police.

Gutierrez-Garcia was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and black leggings. She is 5-foot-7-inches tall and has tattoos on her arms, shoulders and feet.

Since that night, Longmont police have collected security videos, her family has asked the public to come forward with information, and photos of Gutierrez-Garcia have been posted on various social media pages.

Still, police are actively investigating leads from the community and have no further information they can release publicly, Detective Cmdr. Joel Post said Wednesday.

Police declared Gutierrez-Garcia’s disappearance “suspicious” on April 3 after she hadn’t contacted her family for two weeks, which is uncharacteristic for her.
