KEARNS — Unified police are asking for the public’s help in finding a woman that detectives believe was kidnapped and seriously injured from being shot.

On Saturday about 2:30 p.m., Conzuelo “Nicole” Solorio-Romero, 25, was forcibly taken from her home near 5000 West and 5400 South and has not been seen since, Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera announced Tuesday.

Part of the alleged abduction was captured on a doorbell camera across the street, which appears to show a man in a white hoodie force the woman into a green 2010 Toyota Camry with another unidentifiable man driving.

Based on information collected from Solorio-Romero’s home, investigators went to a second location in Salt Lake County where evidence was collected that led police to believe she was shot and seriously wounded.

Rivera declined to release additional information about the second home or what was found inside.

Police also believe a second vehicle, a white pickup truck with an orange or red snowplow attached to the front pulling a flatbed trailer with landscaping equipment, was also involved. No other information was released Tuesday about how the vehicle might be tied to the case.

Law enforcers in Wyoming are also assisting in the investigation as Unified police say they received information the suspects may be heading that way. The FBI, West Valley police and U.S. marshals are also helping in the search for the missing woman.

Solorio-Romero lives with her mother and sister who were the ones reporting her missing, Rivera said. It was not immediately known whether anyone else was home when Solorio-Romero was taken out of her house. The sheriff also did not know Tuesday whether Solorio-Romero had received any prior threats or if there was anyone the family knew who would want to kidnap her.

Investigators are hoping that if anyone has seen either of the vehicles or has any other information related to the case, that they will call the sheriff’s office at 801-743-7000.
