Family says they went to dinner with her to the Silverado Canta Bar, according to KPNX. They said they later got a call from her at 4 a.m., in which she said her boyfriend stabbed Luevano in the neck.
That was the last anyone apparently heard from her.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says that the woman’s boyfriend was found at a local hospital with self-inflicted stab wounds, according to KOLD.
“At this time, the missing person remains open and active,” police spokesman Sgt. Vincent Cole told Law&Crime in an email. “Ms. Luevano’s romantic partner was contacted by police at a local hospital and was questioned. He was subsequently booked into jail for charges unrelated to her disappearance.”
Luevano is reportedly a mother of six children, and she is also a new grandmother. Family tearfully voiced hopes for her safety.
“For me, she’s my other half,” said a woman who KPNX did not name. “We’ve been through a lot.”
“We miss you a lot,” another said. “We just want to know if you’re okay and all that.”
“I love you, and I know you’re going to come back,” a boy said, his voice cracking with emotion.
Officers say Luevano could be in a gray Chevy Impala with the Arizona license plate D3A9VE, but family said she does not know how to drive.
