Lubbock teen reported missing in Colorado Springs while vacationing with family

Colorado officials are searching for a 13-year-old Lubbock girl who reportedly went missing while vacationing in Colorado Springs with her family during spring break.


Colorado Springs police Lt. Howard Black said they are concerned about Adalie Rivera as she has been missing since early Friday morning.

A department statement said she was staying at the Quality Inn Colorado Springs Airport Hotel on Aerotech Drive when she went missing.

“We’re talking about a 13-year-old who knows nobody or very few people in this area,” Black said. “She’s not from here so we’re concerned.”

Officials say she is believed to be wearing a short-sleeve, navy blue T-shirt, medium-blue denim jeans, red, black and white size 5 Nike shoes and a neon yellow bracelet.

Lubbock police said they are assisting the Colorado authorities; however, there is no indication that she is in the Lubbock area.

Colorado officials say the department’s Missing Persons Unit is overseeing the case. She was reported as having no money nor friends in the Pikes Peak region.

“We are doing everything that we can do to get some leads on where she might be at,” Black said.

She is described as a Hispanic female, 5 feet to 5-feet-1 weighing 115 to 120 pounds.

Officials note Rivera has brown hair, lightened with peroxide, and maroon highlights.

She is also noted as having light-coffee-colored birthmarks on her arms, legs, back and neck.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to contact the Colorado Springs PD at (719) 444-7000, Crime Line at (806) 741-1000, or 911.
