Cleveland, OH – The U.S. Marshals in Cleveland, OH and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in conjunction with the Cleveland Police Department (CPD), recovered Lidia Garrido (12) earlier this morning. Garrido was reported missing on July 15, 2023, after she disappeared from the 10600 block of Governor Ave in Cleveland. 
Garrido’s last known contact came this past Sunday when she reached out to family via social media stating she was with a boyfriend but did not disclose her location.

Earlier this morning, the U.S. Marshals Service in Baton Rouge, LA, along with the Baton Rouge Police Department, followed up on the investigation which led them to the 12500 block of La Margie Ave. in Baton Rouge. Garrido was recovered and turned over to local family service authorities.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “The reach and cooperation of the USMS and our partners shines bright today. The fact this recovery happened so far from home, highlights the importance of this mission. We hope this young girl is quickly returned home.
