Nampa Police Detectives are searching for a Boise woman believed to have been kidnapped last night in Nampa.

On May 12 at approximately 8:00 p.m., Nampa Police received several calls from the area of Rooselvelt and Blakes Creek. Callers were reporting that they witnessed a female being battered and forced into a vehicle by a male out in front of a residence. By the time officers arrived, the vehicle had left the area. Shortly after the calls were received, a Nampa Police Officer attempted to stop the suspect vehicle in the area of Caldwell Blvd. and Midland. A brief pursuit of the vehicle was called off due to speeds as this created an ongoing hazard to the public.

The female victim, 19-year-old Cassandra Rupert of Boise, was last seen wearing a bright pink shirt. She is described as a blonde female, 5’ tall, with blue eyes. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male with a shaved head. The vehicle is described as a black Lincoln Navigator with temporary tags. Another Hispanic male was in the vehicle; however his involvement is unknown at this time.

Nampa Police Detectives are asking for the public’s help for any information on the whereabouts of Cassandra. She is currently listed as a missing and endangered person as a victim of a kidnapping.
