Alleged kidnapper and victim found in small boat


A man suspected of kidnapping a Minnesota woman is in custody in Quincy, Ill. according to the Quincy Journal. The Army Corps of Engineers told local law enforcement to be on the lookout for the couple Friday. The newspaper reports they were found in a small boat inside Quincy's Lock and Dam 21.

Witnesses say the woman was too weak to get out of the boat. KARE 11 reports the two left Minnesota on Sept. 5. Authorities are not saying whether she may have left willingly with the man. Names have not been released, although the woman is reported to be in her 50s. The FBI and the Coast Guard are investigating.

Here's the story from KARE 11.
