Luisa Pena

A developmentally disabled pregnant woman who’s been missing for a week has been found safe and sound. 

A man who had seen a missing poster of Luisa Pena noticed her walking down a street in Central Falls and contacted police.  Pawtucket police Major Arthur Martins said it’s unclear where Pena has been for the past week but she appears to be in good condition.

There's still no sign of that pregnant Pawtucket woman who vanished a week ago. But police say there’s no evidence to support the theory that the woman has been abducted.

Twenty-one-year-old Luisa Pena vanished last Wednesday from her aunt’s home in Pawtucket.  The day before she disappeared she had reported a sexual assault to police. Her family fears her assailants came back to silence her. But Pawtucket Police spokesman Arthur Martins said there’s no evidence to support a kidnapping theory.

Pawtucket police say there is no reason to believe a missing, pregnant woman has been abducted.  Relatives of 21-year-old Luisa Pena have expressed concern that she was kidnapped by men she had accused of sexual assault. But Pawtucket police spokesman Major Arthur Martins says there is no evidence of that.

Pena vanished last Wednesday from her aunt’s home in Pawtucket. Relatives say she has the mind of a ten-year-old, has difficulty expressing herself and can’t drive.
