The Jerome teenager believed abducted from a Wendy’s has been located.  The police department in Surprise, Arizona made the announcement on Facebook early Tuesday morning.  Sandra Rios-Chavez is alive.  The 17-year-old was believed to have been kidnapped by 18-year-old Miguel Rodriguez-Perez.  An Amber Alert had been issued for Rios-Chavez Monday. 

The teen girl is expected to be coming home soon.

Rodriguez-Perez’s cellphone apparently pinged a tower in Arizona.  Police in Surprise, a Phoenix suburb, spotted his car Monday.  After a brief chase he stopped and vanished into the night.

The teen girl is expected to be coming home soon.

An earlier report said Rodriguez-Perez had been ordered to stay away from the girl.  He is known to have family south of the United States/Mexico border.

Rios-Chavez was working at the Jerome Wendy’s when she was kidnapped.  The drive from Jerome to the Phoenix area takes roughly 12 to 13 hours.
