New Haven

EAST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Police are asking the public for help finding a missing East Haven woman who was last seen about two weeks ago.

Lizzbeth Aleman-Popoca is a 27-year-old Hispanic female, 5’2”, with black hair and dark brown eyes. It is unknown what she was last wearing.

Aleman-Popoca’s family told police she either went missing on the night of June 30 or early July 1.

“She is so missed, and she is so loved,” said East Haven Police Captain, Joseph Murgo.

Her 7-year-old daughter woke up to find her was not home, police said. She called Aleman-Popoca’s husband while he was at work, who then came to their home on St. Andrews Avenue to find the daughter home alone and his wife missing, according to police.

He said most of her personal belongings were left behind.

Her father, sister and husband reported her missing on July 3.

“We don’t know anything, and we are looking for any information that can help or better yet, that the public may be able to shed light for us to give us a reason behind what happened with her,” her father Albino Alemán, said. “We have a lot of questions and we are worried about her.”

“Anything can help us,” her sister, Yaneth Alemán added. “If you hear anything, if you see anything, please speak up.”

Police said investigators are treating this investigation as suspicious and believe foul play is a factor.

The East Haven Police Department is investigating this case with Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Division, the FBI and the New Haven State’s Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to contact Captain Joseph Murgo at (203) 468-3824.
