VALLEJO, Calif. (MEDIA GENERAL/KRON) — A search is underway for a 29-year-old California woman after her boyfriend said she was abducted from their home and the kidnappers have demanded a ransom.

The Vallejo Police Department has asked the FBI for help with this possible kidnapping for ransom.

Denise Huskins was last seen Monday morning on Mare Island, according to police. Huskin’s 30-year-old boyfriend, Aaron Quinn, contacted Vallejo police just before 2 p.m. on Monday to report the alleged kidnapping had taken place in the middle of the night.

Police announced that they found a car, a 2000 Toyota Camry, several miles from Huskin’s residence. The car is registered to Quinn. The Vallejo Police Department has not released how much is being asked in ransom, or any possible suspects.

Authorities are investigating why it took so long for her boyfriend to report that Huskins had been taken. Authorities said that he is not a person of interest. Police also said the man Huskins lives with is being interviewed by investigators.

Investigators “have a lot of information still to sift through. We don’t have all of the facts in yet, and that’s what he’s helping us do, to piece the puzzle together,” said Vallejo Police Lt. Kenny Park.

Huskins works as a physical therapist at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Vallejo. She moved to Vallejo in June from Southern California.
