Without a trace Boyfriend held as cops search for woman
Thursday, April 27, 2000

The last time cops know for certain that Indira Montiero was alive, she was chatting with a girlfriend on the phone. In the background, a man screamed and cursed at the vibrant young mother.

The voice, authorities say, belonged to Heriberto (Eddie) Palacio, the father of Montiero's 13-month-old girl and a convicted killer.

"Leave me alone," Montiero, 22, shouted as she ended the call and promised to phone her friend the next day. She never did. That was April 1.

Since then, no one has heard from Montiero. Palacio, 31, didn't report her missing, and he is being held on an unrelated gun charge, with prosecutors saying he refuses to help search for the woman he claims to love.

Cops, Search Dogs Hunt Missing Momin Queens

Friday, April 28, 2000 ****

Detectives using police dogs searched a grassy area along the Grand Central Parkway in Queens yesterday as they investigated a young Harlem mother's disappearance.

Indira Montiero, 22, vanished April 1 after her boyfriend screamed and cursed at her while she chatted on the telephone. The boyfriend, Heriberto Palacio, 31, is being held in another case, but prosecutors say he never reported Montiero missing and is refusing to help find her.

On April 2, Montiero's wallet was found in a gas station next to the Grand Central Parkway near LaGuardia Airport, police sources revealed yesterday.

The wallet - holding Montiero's identification and credit cards - had been placed at one of seven pay phones at the Mobil station opposite the Delta Air Lines terminal, the sources said.
