St. Pete Kidnapping Victim Found Safe

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (970 WFLA)St. Petersburg police said the woman who was the subject of a kidnapping investigation has been found in Pinellas Park.

Latanya Henry was unharmed. 

Police said at about 8:25 a.m., officers responded to the Boca Ciega Apartments at 3401 37th Street South regarding a possible abduction/kidnapping of Latanya Henry.

According to the victim's sister, police say Henry had just arrived to pick her up to run some errands.

From her apartment window, police said the sister could see Henry arrive in the parking lot in her 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. When Henry got out of her car she walked over to a silver colored Toyota Camry parked a few spaces over, according to police.

Henry appeared to be having a conversation with someone inside the car when the sister saw one individual reach out and grab Henry who began to struggle, police said.

Police said the sister ran outside to help, but by the time she got downstairs, the suspect vehicle had left, apparently with Henry inside.

Police said Henry's car was left in the lot with the keys in the ignition, the engine running and the victim's personal belongings left on the front seat.

St. Pete police said the only information they have regarding a suspect description is that the man who grabbed Henry was a black male passenger of the suspect vehicle and that another person appeared to be driving, but was not seen by the sister and there could have been other individuals inside the car as well.
