GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Glendale police have located a woman who was believed missing after a man was robbed while on a date with someone he met online.
    
Police say the man drove from southern Arizona on Thursday to meet a woman that he met through Facebook.
    
The man says he was at her apartment near 59th Avenue and Missouri when three suspects entered and robbed him after tying him up.
    
Authorities initially said that 23-year-old Maria Iraceli Ochoa-Garcia was the woman he met and she was considered missing.
    
Sgt. David Vidaure said Saturday investigators located Ochoa-Garcia and determined she was not the woman the victim met online.
    
They say Ochoa-Garcia had no involvement in the incident.
    
Vidaure says detectives are now trying to determine the identity of the woman the victim met with.
