Round Rock police locate missing 29-year-old mother safe

In an update on Wednesday night, police said Yara Perez was located and "is cooperating with law enforcement."

AUSTIN, Texas — The Round Rock Police Department said a woman who had last been seen in late August has now been located.

In an update on Wednesday, police said 29-year-old Yara Perez was found and "is cooperating with law enforcement."

Perez had last been seen around 11:50 p.m. on Aug. 26, leaving Diva's Men's Club at 4134 Felter Lane in southeast Austin with two unknown men in a black Ford Expedition.

Perez's babysitter made the missing person report on Sept. 12. Although Perez was known to be gone for a few days at a time, Perez's babysitter was concerned after not hearing from her since the night of her disappearance.

Police said Perez hadn't called friends or family since late August. Perez lived in Round Rock until April.

On Wednesday, Round Rock detectives located the black Ford Expedition from the night Perez went missing. Detectives spoke to the driver of the vehicle, who said he took Perez and a man to Sixth Street and dropped them off. The driver told detectives that was the last time he saw them.

Police later confirmed Perez's whereabouts after a family member reported she had contacted them. Detectives verified her identity and confirmed her location, according to Round Rock police.

"The Round Rock Police Department wishes to thank the public and news outlets for their concern of Perez’s whereabouts and efforts to locate her," the department said in a statement.

The Round Rock Police Department was supported by Texas Department of Public Safety Texas Rangers during the investigation.
