Aurora police ask public for help finding woman missing nearly 2 months

Aurora police said Felicia Martinez was last seen July 30, and could be with a heavy-set man with red hair, who goes by "Lucky Puppy."

AURORA, Colo. — Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) put out a Developmentally Disabled Alert Thursday for a disabled woman who's been missing for almost two months.

"Growing up with cerebral palsy, she wouldn't let anything stop her," Sonia Martinez said. "She started having surgeries very young."

Sonia Martinez is sisters with Felicia Martinez, 38, was last seen in Aurora on July 30, CBI said.

"Since then, we've had no contact. We haven't heard from her. She would talk to my niece every day," Sonia Martinez said.

Due to cerebral palsy, Felicia Martinez walks with leg braces and a cane. She is limited physically and has a speech impediment. 

"We are very concerned for her welfare due to her physical disabilities," Aurora Police Department (APD) said. 

She had half pink and half purple hair at her disappearance, but her original hair color is brown. Sonia Martinez, who lives in Broomfield, said the last time they saw her, she weighed around 100 pounds.

"Even as much as she never let her cerebral palsy stand in the way of the things she wanted to do, it still has always made her vulnerable to people possibly harming her or taking advantage of her kind nature," Sonia Martinez said.

Felicia Martinez wears dark-rimmed glasses and is 5 feet 5 inches tall. She has multiple scars on her legs and two tattoos: a heartbeat (EKG line) on her forearm and a dolphin on her torso, her sister said.

CBI said Martinez might be accompanied by a heavyset man with red hair who goes by the name "Lucky Puppy."

Sonia Martinez said Denver police recovered Felicia Martinez's car on Sunday in Denver, with the inside stripped and torn apart.

"I don't know what to think about her car being found," Sonia Martinez said.

On Thursday, Felicia Martinez turned 38. Sonia Martinez said they were supposed to go to the Colorado Rockies baseball game together to celebrate. Instead, she's hoping for any sign of her sister eight weeks after her disappearance.

"I can't give up hope on my sister. She's been my best friend since birth," Sonia Martinez said.

If you have any information about this missing person, don't hesitate to call 911 or the APD at 303-627-3100. 

"We just love her and want her back home," Sonia Martinez said.
