RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (TCD) -- A 61-year-old teacher was arrested last week on suspicion of keeping a teen in her home who had been missing for two years.
According to a statement, Rancho Cordova Police officers arrested Holga Castillo Olivares on Thursday, Oct. 20, in connection with her alleged role in a teen’s disappearance. She is reportedly a teacher at Alice Birney Waldorf-Inspired K-8 School.
Fifteen-year-old Michael Ramirez was reported missing June 9, 2020, and law enforcement officials reportedly conducted an "extensive search," but could not find him. He was last seen leaving his home May 18, 2020. Then, on March 11, 2022, Ramirez "inexplicably returned home."
Police took Olivares into custody on charges of detention of a minor with intent to conceal from a parent and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
KCRA-TV reports the Sacramento City Unified School District said Olivares was "taken into custody at the school after students were dismissed for the day" and that "the charges filed are for acts unrelated to the employee’s assigned duties."
According to the Sacramento Bee, Olivares' son is allegedly friends with Ramirez. She has reportedly been placed on administrative leave.
Sacramento County Jail records show she was released from custody Oct. 24.
