Miami woman believed to have been abducted found

NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida woman who police believed may have been abducted, Thursday morning, has been found.

City of Miami Police located 32-year-old Karla Vasquez in good condition and was found in the area of Northeast 157th Street and 15th Avenue, in North Miami Beach.

The vehicle she was allegedly driving, a Chevy Suburban, could be seen attached to a tow truck. The tow truck driver said he saw the woman, and she seemed to be in good condition. Police said they have one person in custody for questioning.

Around 4 p.m., she spoke with Miami-Dade Police detectives. The reason she went missing remains unclear.

According to City of Miami Police, Vasquez had vanished from her home, just off of 42nd Street and Northwest 18th Avenue, around 7:30 a.m.

Police said she allegedly texted her husband that she believed that she was in danger. According to police, her husband did not take the text seriously and ignored the message.

A little while later, she texted him again that she believed she was in danger. This time, he reacted and called the police and instructed them to come to her home located on Northwest 42nd Street.

When police arrived to the home, they discovered that she was not there nor was her car.

The investigation kicked off moments later. Police believe two men may have been with her as she texted her husband Thursday morning.

“We are considering this a possible abduction since her vehicle is not here,” said Miami Police Officer Kenia Fallat. “We’re trying to gather all of our resources, and we already started creating a timeline.”

Neighbor Rick Wilhoite said, “You never know because it could have been abducted. That’s why, as neighbors, we have to keep an eye out on our places.”

Vasquez is currently safe with police.
