ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Authorities in Virginia say that a North Carolina man has been charged in the disappearance of a pregnant woman nearly a decade ago.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Ronald D. Roldan, 40, was charged with abduction in Loudoun County.

The sheriff’s office said that Roldan had been the live-in boyfriend of Bethany Decker. She had lived in Ashburn and was reported missing by her family on Feb. 19, 2011.

The sheriff’s office said that Decker was 21 and five months pregnant at the time. Authorities have been searching for her since her car was found parked outside an apartment complex.

Authorities said that Roldan was charged this week and extradited Tuesday to Virginia from North Carolina. He was being held at the Loudoun adult detention center on no bond, the sheriff’s office said. It’s unclear if he has hired an attorney.
