Ex-beau arrested in case of missing teen


A 17-year-old who went missing Tuesday night during a break from her job at a mall in Wrentham returned yesterday, and authorities later arrested and charged a former boyfriend with her kidnapping.

Wrentham police announced last night that the FBI had arrested Donald Durand, 19, of Rochester, but they did not provide details on his court appearance or the charges.

Durand was arrested, police said, in the disappearance of Nicole Viveiros of Bellingham, who went to an undisclosed police station before she was escorted to the Wrentham Police Department, authorities said.

She had disappeared about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday after a 15-minute break from her job at Eddie Bauer at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, police said. After she was reported missing, authorities launched a massive search involving helicopters, dogs, and about 75 law enforcement officers, the Globe's City & Region section reports today.
