HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) - Henderson police are searching for a suspected kidnapper, accused of forcibly taking his ex-girlfriend from her home on the 1400 block of Aspin Street.

Just after midnight Monday morning, police responded to a report of a possible kidnapping. According to police, the victim, Myra Hernandez, had recently ended her relationship with the suspect, Romero Sebastien Luna. Police say that Luna had tried to contact Hernandez several times since the break-up, and finally located her early Monday morning.

According to witnesses, when Hernandez said she would not leave with Luna, he physically forced her away from her home to a nearby store. Witnesses added that the suspect slapped or hit the Hernandez several times. A witness ran to get help, but when they returned, the suspect and victim were gone.

Fortunately, Monday afternoon, authorities found Myra Hernandez at a friend's home after receiving a tip. The suspect had left the house before authorities arrived.

Police say the suspect has been known to carry a pistol and or knife. He was last seen wearing a black shirt with blue jeans. He is described as having black hair, brown eyes, an olive complexion, 5' 01" and 100 lbs.

If you have any information contact the Henderson Police Department at 903-657-3512 and ask for Det. James Dukes or Lt. Craig A. Sweeney.
