LUBBOCK, Texas - The Associated press reports--
Police say they've charged a 45-year-old Lubbock man with aggravated kidnapping in the case of a 15-year-old
girl listed for weeks as a runaway.
Lubbock police Captain Greg Stevens says the search for Lubbock Monterey High School student Elizabeth Ennen has now changed from a runaway investigation to a kidnapping case. Stevens said Saturday he knows of no leads to her whereabouts, despite the charge against Humberto Maldonado Salinas, Jr.
Police say Ennen apparently was abducted during a January 4th baby-sitting job at a southeastern Lubbock motel. Family members say Salinas was a close friend of Ennen's mother.
Salinas is in Lubbock County Jail with bond at $250,000.
