Transcript for Atlanta Teen Kidnapped at Gunpoint Found Alive; Suspects Captured
drama of a kidnapping and a rescue. A 14-year-old girl was grabbed out of her home at gunpoint, family and friends praying for her safe return. Abc's steve osunsami on how the police got her back today. Reporter: It's what everyone rooting for 14-year-old ayvani perez wanted to hear. This is a good day. She is safe. She is safe. Reporter: It was a whole 30 hours after she was snatched from her family's home in the middle of the night still wearing her pajama bottoms. I'm so glad it's over. Reporter: The tears from last night's vij et at her high school still fresh. We're praying and expecting a safe return. Reporter: Today police found her captive at a location east of atlanta that they're not disclosing. They arrested 29-year-old dragel jackson on kidnapping charges and 40-year-old juan contreras on immigration charges. The two men who broke into the home had no relationship with anyone in the house. Today authorities wouldn't tell us if that was still true. Here's a possible connection. According to court records, both the girl's mother and one of the men arrested today were both arrested on drug charges in 2012, charges against the mother were dropped. There are several other subjects, suspects that we are still investigating. Because of that I really will not be able to get into a lot of particulars on this. Reporter: So many questions here tonight but one thing for sure. Their prayers were answered in this house where friends and family brought balloons welcoming her home. Steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta.
