DOVER, OH (WOIO) - Police have confirmed that 22-year-old Patrona Raymundo is safe and staying with a friend in Homestead, Florida. They say she left town this week on her own.
Dover Police say Raymundo was last seen at her home on North Tuscarawas Avenue at 8 a.m. Tuesday. Her boyfriend told investigators his pregnant girlfriend had gone for a walk.
Close to 24 hours later, Juan Gonzalez called 9-1-1 to report Raymundo as missing. Police later had to use an interpreter to get more information from Gonzalez.
At first, Gonzalez thought he'd received a message from someone demanding a ransom. Police say that ended up being a misunderstanding caused by a language barrier.
Police say there still so much they don't know about Raymundo.
They believe she is an unregistered immigr ant from Guatemala.
Police say they do not think drugs or human trafficking are involved.
The reasons why she left has not been revealed.
