Adult missing persons in Connecticut: Advocate says police aren't doing enough

Published: Sunday, December 18, 2011; Last Updated: Sunday, December 18, 2011 8:55 AM EST

By Michelle Tuccitto Sullo, Investigations Editor

Lisa Calvo was 40 years old and homeless when she was last seen in 2005 in the Fair Haven section of New Haven.

Nineteen-year-old Jose Ortiz was abducted while riding his bicycle on Dec. 28, 2005, in New Haven, and hasn’t been seen since.

Evelyn Frisco of New Haven had a court appearance in 2004, then disappeared.

Barbara Jean Monaco of Derby vanished in August 1978 at the age of 18 while vacationing in Virginia Beach, Va. She has never been found and is believed to have been murdered.

They are just a few of the state’s missing, people who have left behind families mourning their absence and questioning what happened to them.

To try to address the problem and solve the mysteries surrounding missing residents’ disappearances, State Victim Advocate Michelle Cruz plans to propose the creation of a statewide missing persons unit to the legislature.

“We need a missing persons unit for the whole state devoted to working on these cases,” Cruz said. “A lot of police departments have had to cut back. Bigger cities have a lot of unsolved murders, so they are under a lot of pressure. I think having a missing persons unit for the state, a centralized investigative unit, would help.”

Families seek more help

Cheshire resident Janice Smolinski’s son, William Smolinski Jr. of Waterbury, disappeared Aug. 24, 2004, at the age of 31, and police say they believe he was murdered. Janice Smolinski, who has become an advocate for the missing, said she believes having a state missing persons unit would be “very helpful.”

“Maybe more would be done about missing people,” Smolinski said. “Hopefully, it would mean big improvements in the state. I’m happy to see the state’s victim advocate is dedicated to this cause.”

“While some adults are people who have taken off, there are many cases where something has happened to them — either they were murdered or got hurt somewhere — and police need to take it seriously,” Smolinski said.

Diane Nickerson of Naugatuck is looking for answers into the disappearance of her daughter, Carrie Ann Monroe, who had been living with her boyfriend at a Berlin hotel when she vanished about two years ago.

“I think a missing persons unit would be helpful,” said Nickerson, who broke down crying when she talked about her daughter. “It has been two years for us.”

Detectives Revisit 7 Cold Missing-Persons Cases

BY Allan Appel | APR 4, 2014 4:24 PM




The task of finding missing persons falls to Det. Sgt. Elisa Tuozzoli, who described herself on a Friday visit to her office on the third floor of police headquarters as “obsessive-compulsive” when it comes to tackling these cases.  She and her Det. Jesse Agosto, and newly minted sleuth Det. Ann Salamon in the department’s missing persons unit don’t give up.


They asked that anyone with information on the following seven disappearances contact Det. Agosto at (203) 946-6304, ext. 1307.


Below is a slightly amplified rundown, with some additional information provided by the detectives.




• Lisa Calvo was last seen on October 6, 2005.


She’s described as a white female, not quite five feet tall, with brown hair, brown eyes and tattoos on the right leg and right thigh.

Madawaska police assist Connecticut police with missing person investigation

by Don Eno, Reporter

October 24, 2014


MADAWASKA, Maine - The New Haven, Conn. Police Department contacted the Madawaska Police Department on Monday, Oct. 20, regarding their investigation into the disappearance nine years ago of former Madawaska resident Lisa Calvo.


Calvo, who would be 49 today, has been missing since October 2005, according to the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Missing and Unidentified Persons online database. She was last seen at her residence in New Haven.


Calvo lived in Madawaska in the early 1990s, according to Madawaska Police Chief Carroll Theriault.


In a Sept. 18 article on its Web site, the New Haven Register reported that New Haven police collected DNA samples that week, from Calvo's relatives in Connecticut, to compare against the DNA from human remains found in Vernon, Conn. in March 2013.
