PALMYRA, Pa. (WHTM) -

Last week Milton Rodriguez said authorities showed up to his Palmyra home with a search warrant. The warrant, Rodriguez said, was for his car.

"They had a search warrant to go through my car and we left them search the house," Rodriguez said.

He said they took the car for several days to search it. The vehicle is a gold 2004 Acura TL.

Rodriguez said Kortne Stouffer was in the four door sedan hours before she disappeared.

The night of the 28th Rodriguez told abc27 he and some friends were at the Gas Station Pub in Hummelstown. He said Stouffer was there and asked if she could go with them to downtown Harrisburg.

"She asked is she could get a ride with us downtown and I said, 'yeah sure you can come with us downtown'," Rodriguez said.

He said he let a friend drive the group. At one point they were in the Harrisburg Hardware Bar and he saw Stouffer get into a verbal altercation with another woman.

"I don't know if she knew her but they were back and forth and said we had to go so we just left," he recalled.

Rodriguez said bouncers at the bar asked Stouffer to leave so she and the rest of the group left the bar.

Then, according to Rodriguez, his friend drove back to Palmyra early Sunday morning and dropped him off at his house a few blocks away from Stouffer's apartment.

That was the last time he said he saw the now missing 21-year-old, still in the car with others. He said he went inside his house and fell asleep.

"If I knew anything about where Kortne was, I would tell you," he said.

Rodriguez said he was never a suspect and has been working with authorities.

Kortne Stouffer was last seen in her Palmyra apartment July 29th. A male friend who stayed the night was possibly the last person to see her, Rodriguez said. He also said that friend was the one driving his car.

Calls to Lebanon County officials regarding the possible search warrant and investigation was not returned.
