Police looking for missing Elyria woman; possibly held captive by ex-boyfriend

ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - Elyria police are searching for a missing 56-year-old woman, who authorities say is possibly being held against her will by her estranged boyfriend.

According to Elyria police, Linnea Satterfield was reported missing on Monday by her sister after nobody was able to get in contact with her.

Police found Linnea's vehicle parked in a driveway on Eastern Heights Boulevard with her purse locked in the car. Officers also discovered her cellphone nearby. Police then checked her home on Charles Court, which she once shared with her ex-boyfriend, 56-year-old Roy Owens, Jr.

Goodie Nutt lives across the street from where Satterfield and Owens lived for more than 20 years. She has seen and heard of lot involving the now missing couple.

"I know they've had a lot of arguments in the past, really bad," Nutt said.

Detectives entered her home and noticed some sort of a struggle took place, but neither Owens or Linnea were inside. Traces of blood were found on the floor, according to Elyria Police.

After further investigation, Elyria police detectives believe that her estranged boyfriend is holding Linnea against her will.

Though the whereabouts of Satterfield and Owens remain unknown, an arrest warrant against Owens -- for felonious assault and domestic violence -- has been signed.

Owens is a white male, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs about 180 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. He is believed to be driving a gold 2001 Buick LeSabre with Ohio tags GQM3434. A background check reveals he has a criminal record including domestic violence.

Linnea is a white female, approximately 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and has red hair and hazel eyes.

If anybody has information regarding their location, please contact the Elyria Police Department.
