The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office has obtained an arrest warrant for Ronald Roldan for the abduction of Ashburn woman Bethany Decker, according to an LCSO official.
Roldan, now around 40, was reportedly the live-in boyfriend of then-21-year-old Decker in 2011, when Decker went missing. She was five months pregnant at the time.
WTOP first reported the warrant Monday. It was confirmed by the LCSO.
Sheriff's office detectives filed a search warrant for access to Roldan's cell phone, tablet and laptop in July 2016, more than a year after he was charged with attempted murder in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
Per the LCSO, Roldan will soon be released from a five-year prison stay in that state, and authorities plan to take him into custody soon after he is extradited to Virginia.
Neither Decker's remains nor any forensic evidence of foul play have been recovered since she vanished nearly a decade ago.
If convicted of abduction, Roldan could face up to 10 years in prison.
