Glendale Teen Alicia Navarro Found Safe in Small Montana Town after Four-Year Disappearance

After mysteriously vanishing four years ago, missing Glendale teenager Alicia Navarro has been located in a small Montana town, according to an announcement made by the police on Wednesday.

In a press conference held by the Glendale Police Department, Public Information Officer Jose Santiago joyfully shared that Alicia, a former Arizona resident, was found safe, healthy, and happy. The police revealed that she had been reunited with her family.

Alicia’s reappearance came about when she visited a local police department in the area and bravely identified herself as the missing teenage girl. Glendale police quickly responded by collaborating with the Navarro family and conducting numerous interviews to verify her identity.

Officer Santiago expressed immense pride in the dedication of the men and women at their police department, who worked tirelessly around the clock to bring closure to the family and ensure Alicia’s well-being. The discovery of Alicia alive has brought tremendous relief and joy to the community, the police added.

Although Alicia appears to be in good spirits, Glendale Police will continue their investigation into the circumstances surrounding her disappearance and return. It remains unclear where she was during these four years or who she was with, as the police believe she initially ran away from home.

Santiago stated that Alicia is eager to move on with her life and is deeply apologetic for the pain she has caused her mother. She hopes to rebuild their relationship and acknowledges that her actions were unintentionally hurtful.

With Alicia now safe and back with her family, the community joins in celebrating her return and supporting her as she embarks on a new chapter in her life.

Missing Glendale teen, Alicia Navarro, reunited with her family after four years

“A week before her 15th birthday, Alicia left a heartfelt handwritten note for her mother, Jessica Nuñez, in her bedroom, expressing her intention to come back home, as reported by The Arizona Republic.

On a day leading up to her mysterious disappearance on September 15, 2019, Alicia had asked her mother if she could skip school, feeling perhaps nervous about starting classes at Bourgade Catholic High School in Phoenix. Nuñez agreed to her request, thinking it was best to support her daughter during this time. The duo spent the following day visiting a chocolate factory together, and Alicia appeared to be genuinely happy, according to her mother.

In the early hours of September 15, Alicia vanished after asking her mother about her bedtime. Left behind in her bedroom was a note from Alicia stating, “I ran away. I will be back, I swear. I’m sorry. -Alicia.” From that point on, Nuñez had no contact with her daughter until their recent reunion.

Nuñez had a suspicion that Alicia might have been lured away by someone she met while gaming online, a hobby she had been engaged in since she was 11 years old and spent a lot of time on. Despite her cautious nature, Nuñez believed her daughter may have been deceived over time, trusting the person she met online.

Desperate to find her missing daughter, Nuñez collaborated with Glendale Police, who followed up on thousands of leads related to Alicia’s disappearance. Surprisingly, it was the first time Arizona had issued a Silver Alert for someone who was not an elderly person with dementia, underscoring the severity of the situation.

Over the course of their search, police received numerous tips and potential sightings of Alicia from both within the country and internationally. Despite these leads, concrete evidence of an abduction remained elusive. Nuñez took further measures to locate her daughter, enlisting the help of private investigative agencies, putting up billboards, appearing on television programs, and leveraging social media.

Kathleen Winn, the director of Project25, a nonprofit combating human trafficking in partnership with law enforcement, suggested that Alicia had plans to return home. The note she left behind and the belongings she left in her closet, including her favorite things, hinted that she may not have been aware of the prolonged absence.

Throughout this ordeal, Nuñez’s determination and resilience never wavered as she sought to reunite with her beloved daughter, Alicia.”
