Alicia Navarro

Alicia Navarro went missing Sept. 15, 2019.

Tuesday, Sept. 15, marked the one-year anniversary of Alicia Navarro being missing.

Sept. 20 is her 16th birthday.

“We are hoping someone out there will give her family the gift of her safe return,” said Jose Santiago, a Glendale Police Department spokesman.

Glendale police scheduled a press conference for the afternoon of Sept. 15 “to hear where her case stands and what has been done so far to safely return her home.”

Alicia’s mother, Jessica Nunez, was scheduled to attend the event.

Alicia was last seen near 45th Avenue and Rose Lane.

Though she has autism, “Alicia is very high-functioning and would appear no different than any other 14 year old,” according to a Facebook post by the Glendale Police Department shortly after she went missing.

Anyone with information about her is asked to call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000.
