An Orange County woman disappeared after allegedly getting into an argument with her Valentine’s Day date.
Erica Alonso has not been seen since driving off after the bust-up at the man's home near Culver Drive and Deerfield Avenue in the city of Irvine at around 4 a.m, Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. Detectives have checked her bank and cellphone activity, but have found nothing.
The 27-year-old and her date had befriended a couple at the Sutra Lounge in Costa Mesa. Alonso and her date left the bar at around 1:30 a.m after being offered a ride home in the couple’s red Toyota Scion FRS.

At around 3:45 a.m. it is thought the couple left the residence after Alonso and her date argued, and a few minutes later she drove off in her white 2014 Honda Civic EX, according to her date. She never made it back to her home in Laguna Hills 11 miles away.
The couple have come forward and are speaking to investigators, the OC Sheriff's Department said Friday.
