SALT LAKE CITY - Police said a missing woman's boyfriend held her captive for two days before dropping her off and he is still at large.

Officials said 24-year-old Blanca Soldier is in good condition after she was found Thursday morning near 1000 N. 940 W.

Authorities asked for the public's help finding her Wednesday night when they said she could have been kidnapped by her boyfriend, Erwing Rico.

Police said they were called to a home near 1000 N. 940 W. Tuesday night for "suspicious circumstances."

Witnesses told officers a man assaulted a woman in the street and then forced her into a car and sped off.

Officers said they believe Rico and Soldier were the people reported in the altercation.

Police are searching for Rico and said he could be facing multiple charges and may have previous offenses.
