On Sunday, April 7, 2019, at 1:00 p.m., Rita Gutierrez-Garcia’s family, and Longmont Police Services are remembering Rita Gutierrez-Garcia on her birthday at Thompson Park, 420 Bross St., Longmont, CO. The public is invited to attend.

Rita disappeared over a year ago and her family, with financial support from the community, has erected a memorial bench on the Bross side of Thompson Park.
