Woman Kidnapped by Estranged Boyfriend, Police Seek Public's Help

UPDATE

On June 5, at around 5:45 p.m., Hollenbeck Area detectives arrested Matias Lopez for kidnapping at his residence.  His ex-girlfriend Davila was brought home by Lopez unharmed.


Los Angeles:
  Los Angeles police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who allegedly kidnapped a former girlfriend after she dropped their daughter off at a school in East Los Angeles on June 4, 2009.

At around 12:30 p.m., the victim’s mother walked into Hollenbeck Police Station to report at  7:30 a.m., her daughter, Stephanie Lilian Davila, dropped off her 6-year-old child at Griffin Elementary School in a white Mazda minivan, license plate number 5-L-I-D-5-5-4, and never returned.

According to detectives, Davila’s ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Matias Lopez, may have been distraught over a recent break up and took Davila against her will.  A cell phone record determined that Matias may have driven the victim to the Las Vegas area.

Davila is described as a female Hispanic about 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 145 pounds.  She was last seen wearing a dark blue sweat shirt, black sweat pants and black sneakers.

Lopez is described as a male Hispanic, 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds.  He was last seen driving a dark green Jeep Cherokee license plate number 3-R-Y-G-5-5-4.



Detectives are interested in any information on the whereabouts of the victim, suspect and the two vehicles involved.  Anyone with information is urged to contact Hollenbeck Detectives at 323-526-3000.  During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
