NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTIC) -- New Britain Police confirm Virgen Maria Figueroa, a woman they had believed with a murder suspect, was found Friday morning.

Acting Chief of Police Chris Chute said Virgen Maria Figueroa had been reported missing from New Britain and she was believed to be with the wanted homicide suspect, Benjamin Morales. Police also say they were romantically involved.

Benjamin Morales, the suspect in the murder of Alice Marie Figueroa Monday night, was not found.

Family members tell FOX 61 there is no relation between Virgen Maria Figueroa and Alice Marie Figueroa.

Police said Virgen Maria Figueroa’s family has posted on social media and while police believe the two are together, there’s no indication of whether this was a kidnapping or if she went with him by choice.

Thursday, police served arrest warrants on Odalys Morales, 18, and Ramon Morales, 48, in connection with the homicide Monday.

Police say Odalys and Ramon are related to Benjamin, and believe the two misled police and/or provided assistance to Benjamin.

New Britain believe that Benjamin Morales may be driving an early model red Subaru Forester . The car is not registered, and he may be driving it with a misuse license plate. Police say they believe Benjamin Morales may still be in the Hartford area, particularly the South End.
