Authorities Search for Missing ICE Agent in Los Angeles Area

Feds and local police launched a search Wednesday night for a missing ICE agent who didn’t turn up for work in southern California, The Los Angeles Times reports.

But authorities expressed some optimism late Wednesday that no foul play was involved. ICE released a statement shortly before 11 p.m., saying they believed the unidentified officer “was picked up by a fellow … employee after experiencing vehicle problems overnight on a local freeway.”

However, police “will continue to treat the this as a ‘missing persons’ case until the officer is actually contacted.”

The updates were posted on a LA Times report about the suspected disappearance.

Earlier in the day, ICE wrote in a press release, “A search is underway … for an officer with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s and Removal Operations division who may be missing.”

But when she called him at the office Thursday, everything seemed normal. They talked about having Korean barbecue for dinner. Before he could go home, however, he had to meet with a high-ranking supervisor about his job performance.

The exchange grew heated, and Garcia did the unthinkable: He turned his weapon on a fellow agent. He fired at least six shots at the supervisor before another quick-acting agent intervened and shot him dead.
