Reward increases for missing man in Maine for 22 years

BIDDEFORD, Maine (WMTW) – The reward for information about a man who has been missing for more than two decades is increasing.

Angel Torres was last seen on May 21, 1999 on South Street in Biddeford. He was in town visiting friends. State police said they did not think his disappearance was accidental, but no arrests were ever made. Detectives continue to follow and develop leads.

Police say the man Torres was with, Jay Carney, died in 2015 of a drug overdose before telling them the full story of what happened that night.

Now a Bridgton business owner has donated $ 3,500 to increase the reward for information or retrieving Torres’s remains to $ 20,000.

Angel’s parents spent more than two decades keeping their son’s memory alive and begging for answers. “Someone somewhere knows where our son is,” said Ramona and Narciso Torres.

“Maine State Police detectives are interested in speaking with anyone who has more information on Angel’s disappearance,” said Lt. Scott Gosselin of the Major Crime Unit – Southern Maine. “We believe that the right information from courageous people in the community is very likely to help us provide a successful solution for the Torres family.”
