A 14-year-old girl who was abducted from her home in Georgia earlier this week was found alive Sept. 18, following an expansive search, authorities said.
According to the Associated Press, Ayvani Hope Perez of Ellenwood, Ga. was taken from her home on the morning of Sept. 17 after two men invaded the residence. The intruders demanded money and jewelry but the residents said they didn’t have anything to give. Shortly thereafter, the men ran off with Perez.
After an extensive search, the teen was found at a location in Conyers, Ga.
Clayton County Police Chief Gregory Porter said during a news conference. Though Perez was found in good health, she is undergoing an evaluation.
Meanwhile, police have apprehended two suspects, but FBI Special Agent Rick Maxwell told the AP that the two men in custody are not the men identified in sketches. He added that authorities are still on the hunt for more information.
