17 Year Old Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez Missing Since 2/22/13 in Watertown, CT … Belived to Have been Kidnapped (Update: Found Safe)
Missing: Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez
17 year old Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez has been missing since Friday, February 22, 2013 in Watertown, CT. She was last reported seen 2:30 p.m. when she left to go for a walk. According to a press release from the Watertown Police Department, shortly after leaving for her walk, Rodriguez texted her aunt, asking for help. According to accounts, “Nelly had then stated that a white male and a female, unknown to her, had taken her into the vehicle.” Watertown police also stated that aunt received several follow-up messages from Rodriguez’s phone; however, they were not sent by “Nelly” Rodriguez, but an unknown third party. The text messages claimed that they had Rodriguez in their custody. For some reason family members believe that Rodriguez may be headed to Massachusetts. That bit of information is a bit curious. How would the family know that her daughter and the kidnappers be headed to Massachusetts if the adductors are unknown?
Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez Description:
Rodriguez, 17, is a Hispanic female who is approximately 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 115 pounds and has dark brown hair and brown eyes. At the time of her last sighting, Rodriguez was wearing black spandex pants, khaki boots, white and leopard print shirt and a black coat with silver lines on it. Rodriguez also has a red heart tattoo under her left eye.
If anyone has any information on Rodriguez’s whereabouts is asked to call the Watertown Police Department immediately at 860-945-5200.
UPDATE I: Luanelly “Nelly” Rodriguez was found on Saturday safe. As stated above, it was a bit fishy that the family had suspected that she was being taken to Massachusetts, yet it was stated she was abducted. One would expect the police to follow up on this saying that she had never been kidnapped.
Police wouldn’t say at 1 p.m. Saturday whether she had actually been kidnapped. More information is expected this evening.
