Angel Torres, called “Tony” by many, was a Framingham College Student who lived in Denmark, ME when he went missing over twelve years ago after a night out with friends. According to those friends, they were in the Old Orchard Beach / down Biddeford / OOB area before dropping Tony off in Denmark at 2AM on May 21, 1999. They said he was looking for a ride to North Conway, NH.
Tony’s mother, Ramona Torres, last spoke to her son on the phone on May 19, 1999.
On May 24, 1999 Tony’s girlfriend called Ramona and told her Tony never showed up for his first day of work at a restaurant in Barre, ME. Ramona called police later that evening when she failed to get in touch with him.
Family as well as police believe Tony met with foul play however, they have no body or evidence to prove that theory.
Tony’s father, Narciso Torres said his son’s disappearance may be connected to individuals in the Saco, ME area. He said a group of unidentified people involved in criminal activity, who were not friends with his son, frequented the same parties and may no something.
“I think Tony knew them through other people. Tony may have been aware of crimes these people committed,” he said, possibly including the unsolved murder of a Maine teenager earlier that year.
“He was murdered and disposed of, but it’s not going to be solved unless someone comes forward,” he said.
A Maine State Police spokesman said he has no evidence the two cases are connected.
Ramona described Tony, who is her oldest son out of 3 boys, as a very social young man who enjoyed the company of woman and playing sports. She said he would call family regularly but the calls stopped suddenly. This is highly uncharacteristic of their beloved son and they immediately knew something was wrong. They have set up a scholarship in his name at Bonny Eagle High School where Tony attended and graduated from.
Tony was declared legally dead several years after his disappearance. His case remains unsolved.
A reward of $5,000 is being offered for anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s) involved.
