ELYRIA, Ohio-- The Elyria Police Department is asking for people to be on the lookout for a missing woman and her ex-boyfriend.

Linnea Satterfield, 56, was reported missing by her sister at about 7:45 p.m. Monday. Police said the woman's car was sitting in the driveway of her house on Eastern Heights Boulevard and her purse was on the passenger's seat. Satterfield's phone was located a short distance away.

Officers decided to check the home Satterfield used to share with her ex-boyfriend, 56-year-old Roy E. Owens Jr., on Charles Court. Detectives discovered the door was unlocked, there were signs of a struggle and a blood on the floor, but no one was there.

Police said they believe Owens is holding Satterfield against her will. Later on Tuesday, the Lorain County Prosecutor's Office and Elyria police issued warrants for felonious assault and domestic violence for Owens.

Owens is likely driving a gold, four-door 2001 Buick LeSabre with Ohio license plate GQM 3434.

Anyone who sees Satterfield, Owens or the vehicle should call 911 immediately. Elyria police said Owens is considered armed and dangerous.
