His Name is Angel Torres, Part 1

It’s been 22 years and Ramona and Narciso Torres are still waiting for the answers that will bring their son Angel Antonio “Tony” Torres home. Through their memories and stories, we get to know Angel and who he was before he disappeared, plus, the circumstances of the days after he called his parents for the last time.

“It has been 22 years,” Ramona began. “He’s been gone longer than he lived at this point, so it’s very, very heartbreaking.”
