Indian girl, 13, kidnapped by 'obsessed' man

A 13-year-old Indian girl from Minneapolis, Minnesota, is home safe after being abducted by a 28-year-old man.

Police issued an Amber Alert for Katheryn Deverney on Thursday morning. She had been taken from her apartment on Wednesday night by Luis E. Pallares-Villasana, who is in jail on suspicion of kidnapping.

Katheryn's mother said Pallares-Villasana was "obsessed" with her daughter and wanted to take her to Mexico to get married. In October, he allegedly took Katheryn from outside her apartment and kept her for two days.

The incident was reported to police but the family says it wasn't taken seriously. The police are reviewing the case.
