On September 17th, 2018, around 3:30 P.M., the Aurora Police Department was notified of a missing juvenile. Officers arrived in the 1900 block of North Elmira Street and began to gather information about a 10-year-old, Daniela Ruano-Morales, who had run away. Daniela is a Hispanic female, 4'10" tall, 65 lbs., and has brown hair and brown eyes. Daniela was last seen by her mother around 10:00 A.M. that morning.

Due to the age of Daniela, and the duration in which she had been missing, the Aurora Police Department reached out to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI). After consultation, they decided to issue an Endangered Missing Alert. Because there was no information that Daniela had been abducted, this incident did not meet the requirements to issue an Amber Alert.

Aurora Police Officers worked throughout the night knocking on doors and checking the area for Daniela but were not able to locate her.

We reached out to our neighboring agencies and received help from the following agencies: K-9 Jessie and Deputy K. Foster from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, K-9 Dax and Ranger J. Heibert from Boulder County Parks and Open Space, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team, the FBI Denver Field Office, Aurora Fire Rescue and the Denver Police Department. Many others came to assist and were instrumental in our efforts.

Multiple Federal Agents, Officers, and Detectives began to canvas the area where Daniela was last known to be, where they conducted interviews, and gathered information.

Around 12:10 P.M., Officers were notified that Daniela had been found in the Hoffman Heights Neighborhood near East 6th Avenue and North Peoria Street. Daniela was found in the area by a distant relative. Officers responded and were able to locate Daniela safe.

This is still an active and open investigation. Officers are still trying to determine how Daniela got to the Hoffman Heights area. We do not believe that there is any danger to the community at this time.

Finally, we thank the thousands of members of our public who provided tips and information on the whereabouts of Daniela. Our partnership with our community is instrumental in investigating cases such as these.

Information previously released on August 31, 2018

On August 31, 2018, at approximately 5:17 p.m., officers with the Aurora Police Department responded to a reported physical dispute in the 1900 block of Peoria Street.

While conducting an investigation, shots were heard coming from the 1900 block of the Peoria Street/Paris Street alley. Officers responded to the area where shots were coming from and located multiple people lying on the ground. One of the individuals was a juvenile and all were suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

An officer then confronted an armed suspect and gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and the officer, which resulted in the officer and suspect being shot.

The officer, suspect, and others were all transported to local hospitals for treatment. The officer is in good condition and was wearing a bullet resistant vest which saved the officer from sustaining a life threatening injury.

The investigation into this incident is being handled by the Aurora Police Department's Major Crimes Unit in conjunction with the Denver Police Department. This is due to the passage of Senate Bill 15-219 which requires law enforcement agencies to team up with neighboring agencies to investigate officer-involved shootings. We are also working with the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office as we conduct a comprehensive and transparent investigation.

The involved officer has been placed on administrative assignment with pay per Aurora Police Department policy.

We are requesting all members of the public who were a witness to this incident to contact Detective Matthew Ingui at 303.739.6067

Post by Elizabeth B. 

Hello, friends and library patrons! It's almost the end of summer. Have you checked off everything on your summer list? Been to a beach bonfire? Started a band? Made your own ice cream? Fought off a group of multi-eyed foxes on a late-night hike?

No, you're right. I haven't done any of those things, either.

But fortunately, we live in a world with libraries, where each of those adventures is just a page-turn away! Welcome to Camp Read-a-lot, where I've tracked down reads just as adventurous and interesting as you are. Check out these four books about summer (and two tasty snacks) as you finish your vacation.

Two people on the beach watching the ocean"Summer of Salt" by Katrina Leno 
One-Sentence Summary:
Georgina Fernweh, the only non-magical Fernweh, must clear her family's name when tragedy strikes the island of By-the-Sea.
Why you'll love it: Georgina's sister can fly! Her great-great-great-aunt might be a bird! There's a graveyard where it's always autumn and a goth ice cream shop and a cute romance between Georgina and a visiting girl named Prue. I felt like I could hear the waves and rain while reading.
Essential summer activity checklist: Bird-watching, beach bonfires, solving supernatural mysteries



Person with burger"The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)" by Amy Spalding
One-Sentence Summary:
Abby's used to being the sidekick in her friends' stories, but a summer full of bests – best internship, best burgers, best dresses, and maybe even best summer romance – is about to propel her into the spotlight.
Why you'll love it: When I finished reading this book, I wanted to dye my hair pink and learn to sew. Abby's funny, cool, creative, and caring: such an amazing main character! The side characters are fun, too, from bro-BFF Jax to Abby's crush Jordi Perez, a photographer girl in all black who just happens to be competing for Abby's internship. This felt like the literary equivalent of sunshine and cotton candy.
Essential summer activity checklist: Rating burgers, wearing cute outfits, working an internship while worrying about eventually making money

Girl playing guitar"All Summer Long" by Hope Larson 
One-Sentence Summary:
When Bina's best friend Austin leaves for the summer, Bina has to find other friends to spend time with and other ways to fill her summer.
Why you'll love it: Bina is a musician to the core. Her passion for music takes her on all sorts of adventures: breaking into her best friend's house, going to a concert for the first time, and writing her own songs. Bina's social life is also changing in less fun ways, and she has to adjust, from dealing with cool but condescending older kids to her suddenly distant best friend and distracted parents. This book will be a new favorite for Raina Telgemeier fans.
Essential summer activity checklist: Playing music, going to concerts, waiting for a friend to reply to a text

Main characters in a wooden row boat"Lumberjanes" by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn A. Allen and Noelle Stevenson 
One-Sentence Summary:
A group of girls at a highly unusual summer camp battle mythical monsters and solve mysteries, much to the dismay of their cabin leader.
Why you'll love it: I never went to summer camp, but I'm pretty sure this is what it must have been like. I love all of the Lumberjanes – Mal is my favorite – and I love the weird adventures they manage to find everywhere they go. Plus, I'm curious what's going to happen! This is a good choice if you want to read an ongoing comic book filled with new plot twists on every page.
Essential summer activity checklist: Arm-wrestling, cake-decorating, Friendship to the Max


AND THE SNACKS:
All of these books are fantastic and wonderful, but you can't read on an empty stomach! You've got to get some ice cream to beat this summer heat.

If you want a cooking challenge, you could make some Sea Salt Ice Cream. These nostalgic treats from the Kingdom Hearts series are perfect for anyone who loves ice cream or video games. Plus, I've tested them out and they're delicious.

If you'd like to make them, check out The Geeky Chef Cookbook by Cassandra Reeder or The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook by Rosanna Pansino. Best enjoyed with one or two friends on top of the nearest clock tower.

"But what if I am ALREADY outside on a clock tower, away from fancy kitchen equipment?" you may ask.

Don't worry, friend, I still can help. Do you have two Ziploc bags and some half-and-half? Here's a quick and easy recipe that will have you eating ice cream faster than you can say "library card."

Make Your Own Ice Cream
What You Need
• Two plastic Ziploc bags – one pint-sized and one gallon
• 1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
• 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
• A spoonful of sugar (or two if you want, I won't judge)
• 3-4 cups of ice
• 8 tablespoons of salt
• And a towel so your hands don't freeze

1. In the smaller bag, combine the cream, vanilla, and sugar.
2. In the big bag, put the ice and salt.
3. Seal up the small bag and put it in the large bag.
4. Wrap the bag in the towel and shake it, juggle it, whatever you like – just keep it moving!

Every website I've seen says that this takes 5 minutes, but it took me about 10.

And ta-da! Ice cream!

(Thanks to How Stuff Works and Genius Kitchen for the recipes I based this on!)

Now, armed with these snacks and reading recommendations, I hope you can have a wonderful end-of-summer vacation.

UPDATE: On Monday, August 20, 2018, a large amount of blood was found next to a dumpster in the west alley of an Apartment Complex located at 142 Del Mar Circle.

The Aurora Police Department continues to aggressively investigate this incident. Information gathered during this investigation and through the use of specially trained K9s led us to an area inside the Denver Arapahoe Disposal Site (DADS). On Saturday, August 25, 2018, a thorough search at DADS was conducted to uncover any information about the source of the blood. An area the size of approximately one acre was searched for almost twelve hours which resulted in no new information about this incident.

An analysis of the blood was conducted and after testing, was determined to be human. Further testing of the blood resulted in a DNA match with Eric Todd Ewing, who was subsequently reported as a missing person by the Aurora Police Major Crimes Unit.

Ewing, who is pictured below, is a black male who is 43 years old. He is 6’9”, 225 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. Ewing is homeless and frequents the area around East 6th Avenue and Peoria Street and the area of East Colfax Avenue and Florence Street.

The circumstances surrounding Ewing’s disappearance are not known at this time. If you see Ewing, please contact our dispatch center at 303.627.3100. If you have information about the whereabouts of Ewing, please contact Detective Sergeant Stephen Jokerst at 303.739.6092
