FARGO Three months after seemingly vanishing without a trace, prompting worried family and friends to ask for help, a Fargo restaurateur has been found alive.
It’s a development that raises new questions about where he is now and why he left.
The Fargo Police Department announced on Facebook Thursday, Sept. 7, that the discovery came about after a detective followed up on a lead connected to Rodolfo Romo Garcia, 43, who did business locally as Rodolfo Romo.
He was reported missing by his family June 2 after he didn’t show up at work for two days and didn’t answer his phone, which was turned off.
Fargo police said another law enforcement agency was able to contact Garcia in person after the Fargo detective followed up on the lead.

The department said the missing person report will be closed, and the case is no longer considered a criminal matter.
Garcia’s three Romo’s Tacos restaurants in Fargo closed after he disappeared, and concerned friends pressured investigators to find him throughout the summer. Many of those leading search efforts said it was out of character for Garcia to disappear like this. Several relatives came to town in mid June from Omaha and Sioux Falls to talk with detectives and tell reporters they were worried about their family member who, according to them, suffered from diabetes and a hernia.
Cameron said Thursday she just wanted to know he was safe. She said she hasn’t communicated with him since late May when he was last seen at his restaurants.
While the news is a relief, she said she hopes Garcia can get his life “back on track” now that he’s been found.

New information about the case was scarce this summer, though court documents related to the filing of a search warrant seeking Garcia’s Verizon Wireless phone records shed some light on an investigation into reports of owed money and threats.
Those documents said Garcia’s accountant told police he was a “somewhat difficult” client because he didn’t submit payroll paperwork in a timely manner and didn’t document deposits in his business account.
