Police Call Ex-Boyfriend Of Missing Woman "A Person Of Interest"

By  | 

Police say there is still no sign of 22-year old Jaclyn Funderburg. A man described as her boyfriend is being held on domestic violence charges.

Salvator Esquivel-Castillo, 35, was arrested last Thursday for an incident that took place in May in which Funderburg's jaw was broken.

The Colorado Springs Police Department is asking anyone that may have seen Jaclyn during the evening of July 11, possibly in a white 1999 Cadillac with Colorado License 137OCY to contact the Colorado Springs Police Department at 444-7000. This vehicle is now located in an impound lot pending further investigation.

Family members have gathered in Colorado Springs desperate to find Funderburg. She was reported missing Thursday morning when she didn't show up for work.

Police say she was last seen at a Wendy's at Powers and Stetson Hills on Wednesday night, July 11. Earlier, she was seen arguing with someone, possibly her boyfriend, at a Walgreens parking lot at Barnes and Tutt.

Police say they have no new leads. But, they aren't giving up hope. They're still trying to figure out what happened to Funderburg.

Four days and counting and still no sign of Funderburg.

"Just an overall great person."

Co-workers say Wednesday night was the last time they saw Jaclyn. But, when she didn't show up for her shift Thursday morning at Wendy's, friends and family started to worry and called police.

Jaclyn's older sister told 11 News that Jaclyn would never mysteriously disappear and leave her 10-month old son behind.

"That's not like her. She cares about her job and her son. She wouldn't leave them like that," said Jessica Funderburg.

Jessica says Jaclyn has a troubled past, but, had been showing signs of turning her life around ever since she became a mom

"I've seen her grow up over the last year. Whereas a year ago she was doing her own thing. That's why this has really got us. She was so close to being okay," Jessica said.

Jaclyn's parents live in Ohio. They traveled to Colorado Springs this weekend and spent Sunday afternoon meeting with detectives.
