The husband of Ana Maria Knezevich Henao, a woman who was reported missing while in Spain in February, has been arrested in Florida, the FBI confirmed Monday.

David Knezevich, 36, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is in federal custody for his alleged involvement in his wife’s kidnapping on or about February 2, 2024, according to FBI spokesperson James Marshall.

His arrest was made without incident Saturday by the Diplomatic Security Service and the FBI at Miami International Airport, Marshall said. Knezevich has not yet had his initial appearance in Miami Federal Court, according to court records.

The Spanish National Police, US Customs and Border Protection, the Diplomatic Security Service, and the FBI are continuing their investigations.

Knezevich Henao, 40, was reported missing in February after she failed to meet a friend in Madrid.

Knezevich Henao’s friend, Sanna Rameau, said she last exchanged messages with her on February 2.

Around the time she went missing, Rameau said she received a WhatsApp message from Knezevich Henao which read: “I met someone wonderful!! He has a summer house about 2h (hours) from Madrid. We are going there now and I will spend a few days there. Signal is spotty. I’ll call you when I get back.”

The cameras disabled were at the entrance of the building and near the elevator, the superintendent said. It’s unclear if the incident is related to her disappearance.
