Former Boyfriend Arrested for Kidnapping
Bend Police have made an arrest in connection with the disappearance of a 24-year-old Bend woman but so far, there is still no sign of her.
This all began when friends and family of a 24-year-old Sara Gomez starting posting messages on social media about her disappearance. All of this led to a missing persons report filed with Bend Police. Detectives interviewed Sara’s friends and family and their investigation led them to a former boyfriend named Bryan Penner. When Bend Police executed a search warrant at the 31-year-old’s apartment, they found enough evidence to arrest Penner.
Bend Police say they still don’t know Gomez’ whereabouts.
During Penner’s first appearance in court on Thursday, the judge set bail at $100,000.
