A woman is missing from Pembroke Pines and police are treating her disappearance as a possible abduction, authorities said.
Damaris Saavedra Rodriguez went shopping and left her grocery-filled SUV in a supermarket parking lot in western Pembroke Pines. She may be in the company of a friend, but it's unknown whether she is with him willingly.
By mid-morning Tuesday, hours after Saavedra Rodriguez, 43, was reported missing, police said she could be with a "long-term family friend." His name is Luis Eduardo Carvajal, 48, also of Pembroke Pines.
Authorities say the pair may be travelling to an unknown location in a gray 2015 Dodge Caravan with Florida license plate number DIZX14.
"We believe that they are likely traveling together. We don't know if she's traveling consensually or against her will which is why we are working this case as a potential abduction," Police Capt. Al Xiques said.
At about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday, police were called to the Publix at 18341 Pines Blvd., in the Silver Lakes community, by a family member of Rodriguez.
Officers were told that Saavedra Rodriguez left her nearby home to go shopping on Monday night and never returned, police said. Family members found her silver, Mercedes-Benz SUV in the store's parking lot, locked and containing groceries- both perishable and non-perishable items, according to police.
Additionally, the store's surveillance system shows Saavedra Rodriguez leaving the supermarket and walking toward the parking lot shortly after 10 p.m.
Police say it is unknown whether missing woman Damaris Saavedra Rodriguez may be in the company of long-time friend Luis Eduardo Carvajal.
Saveedra Rodriguez is about 5 foot 3, weighs about 110 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, dark jeans and tennis shoes with heels, police said.
She and her husband own a cabinet-making business in Miami-Dade, investigators said.
