January 23, 2019 – Police arrested Victor Pena, 38, on kidnapping charges. Olivia was found at Pena’s apartment in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, about 2 miles north of the bar where Ambrose was last seen. It was a video at Congress Street that showed two men approach Olivia, and showing Pena putting his arm around and clutching her, walking away with her toward the T. Authorities stated you could see she was not going with him willingly. Using Olivia’s cell phone they tracked her to an area and kept knocking on doors of homes until that knocked on one door and Pena opened it, and Olivia was there. Read more at the Boston Herald.

“Investigators said Ambrose was seen leaving the bar around 11:00 p.m. with a man who police determined not to be involved in her disappearance. About 40 minutes later, Ambrose is seen in surveillance footage a few blocks away, where two other men invited her to walk with them. One of the men, the individual seen in the surveillance images, put his arm around her and directed her to the nearby State Street MBTA station. About 20 minutes later, Ambrose appeared with that same man leaving the Bunker Hill Community MBTA station in Charlestown, a short ride from the State Street station. Police said he still had his arm around her. Ambrose and the man were seen for the last time about 10 minutes after leaving the Bunker Hill station, at an intersection a short walk to the north. Police said phone records subsequently showed Ambrose’s phone in the vicinity of the nearby Bunker Hill Housing Development.” Reported by CBS News
