Jacob Gardea

Twenty-three-year-old Jacob Gardea, of Albuquerque, New Mexico was arrested late Wednesday night in Checotah at a motel after he was accused of abducting a 13-year-old girl from North Carolina, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI and North Carolina law enforcement officials had been searching for the girl for days and found her and Gardea in the McIntosh County town south of Muskogee in a America’s Best Value Inn. She was reported missing on Nov. 26.

The girl reportedly suffers from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, which made officials concerned for her safety.
