GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Glendale police say a man who drove from southern Arizona to see a woman he met online ended up getting robbed at gunpoint.

Sgt. David Vidaure says the man called police around 5:30 p.m. Friday and they located him at 59th Avenue and Missouri.

According to the victim, he met 23-year-old Maria Iraceli Ochoa-Garcia on Facebook earlier in the week.

He arrived Thursday and spent the night with her at an apartment.

He told police three armed men entered.

They allegedly took his wallet, phone and truck after tying him up.

The man says it took him several hours to get free.

Police say Ochoa-Garcia’s whereabouts remain unknown and she is being considered as an endangered missing person.

The victim’s car is described as a red 2013 Dodge Ram.
