Hurtado is American, with Hispanic roots. He was born in California, and grew up in Colorado. He attended high school in Evergreen and later attended Colorado Mountain College. His parents and sister live in Colorado. “He lived in Alamosa. He spent most of his time there, when he was not working at an oil field or traveling,” said Trevizo.
Hurtado’s friends are surprised that he abandoned his dog. “He would never leave his dog alone for too long. He took his dog everywhere. He would even pay the airfare and take his dog everywhere he went,” mentioned Trevizo. Hurtado’s disappearance has been informed to the Costilla County police department and Sergeant Ricky Rodriguez oversees the investigation. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has also opened a criminal investigation regarding Hurtado.

Hurtado had a brief text message conversation with his boss at the energy company where he worked. That conversation also took place on February 22nd. “It was a brief message,” revealed Trevizo, but she didn’t elaborate on details about its content.
Hurtado has been described as a very social person. “He is always surrounded by friends. He is a good person. He has no addictions and he is not a troublemaker.
