Washington’s Most Wanted: King County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help to find Esai Hernandez-Lopez, who also goes by the name of Omar Salazar. He has multiple felony warrants for his arrest including Violation of a Domestic Violence Court Order, Felony Stalking, Unlawful Imprisonment and Escape 2nd degree.
“On Christmas day in the city of Kent, he found his ex-girlfriend. She was staying at a hotel. He went and knocked on the door. He ended up getting into a physical fight with another person that was there.. He then kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, forced her into a vehicle and drove her from the scene. Probably about five minutes away, she was finally able to get out of the car and then she ran back for help. A few months prior, the same ex-girlfriend, he had assaulted her. He had strangled her unconscious. The ex-girlfriend’s 10-year-old daughter was present for all of it and he even threatened to kill her if she called the police and if he went to jail. Our biggest fear is for the victim, his ex-girlfriend, and her kids to make sure that she’s safe. We need help finding this guy as quickly as possible,” said Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
Hernandez-Lopez is 36 years old, 5’6″ and 165 lbs. He is believed to be hanging out in the Auburn area possibly with a woman.
