ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities are re-opening the case of a New Mexico woman who went missing 25 years ago.

Homeland Security Investigations and local agency announced at a news conference Wednesday that a six-person [auth] task force will re-examine the disappearance of Tara Calico.

Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston says interest in returning the case was sparked after a conversation he had with the victim’s sister.

Ninteen-year-old Calico went missing after going for her routine 34-mile bike ride on N.M. 47 from Rio Communities in October 1988. The University of New Mexico-Valencia student’s disappearance has baffled investigators for years since very little clues were left behind.

According to the Albuquerque Journal (, the task force will include people from federal Homeland Security Investigations, New Mexico State Police and county and local law enforcement.
