A Capitola woman has been missing for more than three weeks and police said her boyfriend has been identified as the “primary person of interest.” 

According to the Capitola Police Department, Alice “Alyx” Kamakaokalani Herrmann, 61, was last seen in Santa Cruz on December 3 and they believed she may have been a victim of a homicide. 

“Based on evidence located during the investigation, law enforcement has reason to believe Alive may be the victim of a homicide,” Capitola police said.

Herrmann’s car was found parked in front of Theobald  “Theo” Lengyel’s El Cerrito house. 

Lengyel, 54, was Herrmann’s boyfriend and played the saxophone in the rock band “Mr. Bungle.” He is also known as Mylo Stone. 

On December 12, Herrmann was officially reported missing by her relatives because she missed a flight to Hawaii. 

Herrmann is a Pacific Islander who stands 5-foot-4, weighs 135 pounds, and has hazel eyes, and brown hair. 

Lengyel is a white man who stands 5-foot-10, 170 pounds and has brown eyes and hair.

Lengyel drives a blue 1989 Ford pickup truck with the license plate “UNCLDRT.” His car and Hermann’s red Toyota Highlander are both in police custody.
