Authorities in Waterford Township say the unidentified woman met the man on OkCupid and the pair decided to meet up in person. During their date on February 26, the man — who went by multiple names such as Gennaro Aladena, Mike Rossman, or ‘Gooch’ — took her car keys and drove off in her red Toyota Solara.
