HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Police say a woman who was reported kidnapped from her boyfriend's San Francisco Bay area home and held for ransom has contacted her father to say she's in the Southern California city of Huntington Beach.
Huntington Beach Officer Jennifer Marlatt said Wednesday police haven't confirmed 29-year-old Denise Huskins is in the city and are sending officers to the homes of her mother and father, who both live there.
Marlatt said Huskins either called her father or left him a voicemail, but police haven't made contact with her.
Huskins' boyfriend told police she was abducted Monday from his Mare Island home in Vallejo, northeast of San Francisco.
Aaron Quinn, 30, called police at about 2 p.m. that day to report she was forcefully taken in the middle of the night and the intruders demanded ransom.
It's unclear why Quinn took so long to alert authorities, who wouldn't reveal details about the case and said the boyfriend is not a person of interest.
A car registered to Quinn was taken from Huskins' Vallejo home and found at an undisclosed location, police said.
Huskins works as a physical therapist at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Vallejo. She moved to Vallejo in June from Southern California.
Vallejo police said that on Tuesday, searchers focused on an area of the Mare Island waterfront where there was some indication of a submerged mass the size of an adult. Divers, however, found nothing of significance, a police statement said.
