Missing Indira Montiero
Montiero, circa 2000
Missing Since 04/02/2000
Manhattan, New York
Classification Endangered Missing
Age 22 years old
Height and Weight 5'4, 110 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics Hispanic female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Montiero's ears are pierced. She has rose tattoos on her back and on her right ankle. She may wear eyeglasses.
Details of Disappearance Montiero was last seen at her apartment in the 1800 block of 7th Avenue in the New York City borough of Manhattan on April 2, 2000. At approximately 7:00 p.m. the night before, she was speaking on the phone with a friend when her live-in boyfriend, Heriberto "Eddie" Palacio, was overheard screaming and swearing at her in the background.
Montiero has never been heard from again. Her boyfriend said he last saw her on April 2 when she went to a hairdresser's appointment, but the police found out she never visited a hairdresser that day. In fact, no one besides Palacio claims to have seen Montiero after April 1.
He never reported her missing; her brother did, on April 7. Palacio said he didn't approach the police about her disappearance because she had an order of protection against him and he feared he would be arrested.
Montiero left her clothes and beeper behind in her apartment. On April 2, the same day Palacio claims he last saw her, Montiero's wallet, identification and credit cards were found at a pay phone at a Mobil gas station next to the Grand Central Parkway near LaGuardia Airport, opposite the Delta Airlines terminal.
The gas station attendant who found the wallet didn't report his discovery for several days because he assumed the owner would return for it. Authorities believe whoever placed the wallet at the gas station did so in an attempt to mislead the investigation.
