LUBBOCK (AP) - 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 Capt. 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. A message left for Stevens Sunday wasn't returned.
Police say Ennen apparently was abducted during a Jan. 4 baby-sitting job at a southeastern Lubbock motel. Family members said Salinas was a close friend of Ennen's mother.
Salinas is in Lubbock County Jail with bond at $250,000. No attorney is listed on Salinas' jail record.
