Family Reunited After Kidnapping

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A family is now reunited after an early morning kidnapping at the 7-Eleven store on 6th Street in Grants Pass.

Just after 8 a.m. Saturday, a resident reported his vehicle had been stolen while his two small children, ages 8 and 3, were sitting in it. Officers located the children on F Street in Grants Pass before an Amber Alert could be issued.

“The 8-year-old informed us that the guy that took the car stopped and let them off so they were able to get out of the vehicle unhurt,” said Grants Pass Police officer Todd Hawley.

The vehicle is still outstanding. Officers believe the white Ford Explorer could be connected to a reckless driving complaint on Upper River Road Saturday afternoon.

Police are using surveillance photos to help locate the suspect. Contact police if you have any information.
