DCI Assisting Minnesota Authorities in Search for Missing Woman

Rock Valley, IOWA --- The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is helping Minnesota law enforcement in its search for a missing Worthington, Minnesota woman. 

Lucia Perez, 41 years old, was reported missing at the end of June, 2011.  Law enforcement believes she may have traveled in a maroon Buick Century to Rock Valley, Iowa on the afternoon of June 27, 2011 with Bernardino Ramirez-Perez.  Perez was last seen wearing a long denim skirt, a black, short-sleeved blouse with white decorations, and carrying a black backpack.

If any Iowan has information related to the recent whereabouts of Perez or Ramirez-Perez, please contact your local law enforcement immediately.
