Boone County Sheriff’s Department detectives continue their statewide search for a Columbia woman kidnapped from her residence Thursday morning. The stolen car, however, has been found in Kansas City.
The roommate of Sara Riebold, 25, called detectives to their home in the 11000 block of Old Highway 63 N. Thursday to report Riebold’s disappearance. The roommate said he’d been struck over the head and bound, according to a news release. The release said he reported Riebold and his teal 1994 Mazda Protege missing. The roommate was hospitalized Thursday and released later that day.
The department has called in the FBI, a release said.
Kansas City police recovered the vehicle at about 10 p.m. Thursday night, the release said.
Riebold, 25, is a white, 5-foot 7-inch female with brown eyes and brown hair. Police are looking for Riebold’s ex-boyfriend, suspect Andrew Viggers. Viggers is thought to be armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Boone County Sheriff’s Department at 875-1111 or CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
