Search underway for Topeka woman, her estranged husband

Viviana Vazquez

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) –Authorities are looking for an injured Topeka woman and say her estranged husband took her against her will.

Topeka police Lt. Chris Heaven said Thursday morning that officials are “very concerned.” The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that an arrest warrant has been obtained for 38-year-old Pedro Enrique, whose 33-year-old wife, Viviana Vazquez, filed for divorce in April.

Police say her kidnapping was reported around 7 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say two children were left behind and weren’t injured. Divorce records show that the couple had 3- and 10-year-old children.

Later Wednesday, officers thought they saw movement while preparing to serve a search warrant at Enrique’s house. But police determined the house was unoccupied after negotiators tried to make contact with anyone inside.

Police continue looking for a silver Chrysler PT Cruiser.
Anyone with information call the Topeka Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 785-234-0007.
