RENO, Nev. -- Police rescued a 17-year-old Nevada girl early Saturday morning to end her 21-hour kidnapping ordeal, and arrested her two alleged abductors.
Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers says investigators tracked Melissa Duran and the suspects to a Las Vegas apartment complex, where she was found bound and blindfolded. She was not physically harmed.
The chief says 25-year-old Alejandro Sanchez-Sanchez and 30-year-old Cesar Sanchez, both of Las Vegas, were arrested on charges of kidnapping and extortion after being found in other units.
They're accused of knocking on the door of the family home around 7:30 a.m. Friday and grabbing Duran when she answered.
Police say her parents later received two calls demanding money for her return.
Investigators believe the suspects had some kind of connection to her father's landscaping business.
