33 year old Azia Diana Saldana was last seen on August 26, 2023 in Torrington, Wyoming. She disappeared after going to a truck stop to play slots.
Azia Saldana was born to parents Lisa and Amado Saldana. She is an only child. At the time of her disappearance, Azia was living in Torrington, Wyoming. She is a mother of four.
She has struggled with drug addiction in the past and had been incarcerated for drug use, but did not have any pending charges in Wyoming when she went missing.
Around 4:30 pm on August 26, 2023, Azia Saldana left her parents’ home in Torrington, Wyoming to go play slots at the Western Travel Terminal, a local truck stop.
She texted her mother that evening saying she would be home by 8:00 pm.
Azia never returned home and hasn’t been heard from since.
A neighbor told Azia’s parents that he drove her to a hotel in the Denver area on or around the 27th of August. He says he came back to the hotel a few hours later, but she was gone.
Azia was using a prepaid phone at the time of her disappearance, which has since gone out of service.
There were messages sent from her phone on August 30 saying “I’m fine, don’t worry,” but whether they came from Azia herself has not been verified.
Police do not believe Azia is in the Torrington area, and have been focusing their searches in Colorado.
“Based on the information we have in the investigation, we believe Azia is or has been in the Denver area,” Torrington Police Chief Matt Johnson told Cowboy State Daily.
Authorities say Azia has been known to go missing for long periods of time, and is known to frequent the areas of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Brighton, Colorado, and Denver, Colorado.
Although she was known to leave for extended periods of time, loved ones say she would always maintain contact with family.
On October 25, 2023, the Torrington Police said they had turned up some useful information in Azia’s disappearance, though her location, status, and well being remain unknown.
