A missing Cheatham County woman, Nikki Alcaraz, was located safely by police in Eureka, California on Tuesday morning, according to WKRN.
Eureka Police Department responded to a report of a missing person later identified as Nikki, just after 7 a.m. on May 30, 2023 on the 100 block of 4th Street. Investigators determined Nikki and her boyfriend, Tyler Stratton, had been together at the location.
Later that day around 2:30 p.m., the police department received a call that stated where a vehicle associated with Nikki and Stratton had been traveling. Officers located a vehicle parked in the area and found both Nikki and Stratton inside the car.
