NAMPA -- The boyfriend of a missing Nampa woman turned himself in to Nampa Police Tuesday.

Police had asked for the public to be on the lookout for 39-year-old Alfredo Martinez. Detectives wanted to question him about the disappearance of his girlfriend 36-year-old Selena Dawn Thomas.

Thomas has been missing since Thursday.

A parole officer was also looking for Martinez, who had not disclosed his trip to McCall. He was arrested for violating his parole and was booked into the Canyon County Jail Tuesday night.

Martinez has a criminal history that includes charges of domestic assault, although he pleaded guilty to lesser charges of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

Nampa police got involved Monday night when they were called by a family member of the missing woman, 36-year-old Selena Dawn Thomas. She hasn't been heard from since Thursday.

Police who went to Thomas' home to check up on her discovered suspicious circumstances. Her car was at the home, along with her purse and keys, but there was no sign of the Nampa woman.

Thomas is a white woman with brown hair and brown eyes, 5-foot-7 and about 150 pounds.

Neighbors saw a group of people, including Martinez, at Thomas' home this weekend without her.

"He had mentioned to family members that they were taking a trip to McCall," said Sgt. Joe Ramirez with the Nampa Police Department. "However, seeing him at the home without her, again, raised some suspicions."

Police say the recent whereabouts of two vehicles may provide some clues in the efforts to locate Thomas.

One is a 2001 white Chevy Monte Carlo and the second is a 2001 white Dodge extra cab Dakota. Both vehicles are in police custody. Anyone who recalls seeing either vehicle between Friday, August 15 and Monday, August 18 is urged to call Nampa Police at 465-2203 or 465-2206, or Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
