“There was a tie found on her. We’ve been able to confirm that she was able to free herself from some of them by using a lighter. There were still some around her wrist and ankle,” said Luke Causey, a spokesman with Vail police.

Investigators say they don’t believe there is a danger to the community.

They hope to be able to release more information about a suspect soon.

Anyone with information about suspicious activity in either area is encouraged to call Vail Police and speak with Detective Sgt. Luke Causey, 970-470-2372 or lcausey@vailgov.com.
