That didn't look like security camera video, the camera was following the girl and then it panned over to film the car. The person filming must have seen something that happened before they started filming.

State police said they stopped the suspect vehicle on the Massachusetts Turnpike Wednesday night and found the girl inside the vehicle.

Springfield police said Charlotte was returning home from Hampden Charter School when she went missing Wednesday afternoon.

State police said she was forced into a blue Honda at 1:26 p.m. near the corner of Princeton and Amherst streets, not long after she got off her school bus.

I read some comments on FB and someone said they were listening to the scanner. Apparently someone spotted the car, called it in and followed the car until cops showed up.

If this is a case of a non-custodial parent running off with the kid I'm going to be changing my tune.

I got my alert around 7:00 PM too. 5 - 6 hour delay I would have thought it would be maybe 10 minutes - 1/2 am hour.
exactly. I saw it on FB hours earlier.... like real early afternoon
even heard an emergency broadcast on the radio at 530...

Good ending to this story for sure. I got an 11 year old and my heart sank when I heard this earlier. Major Amber Alert fail. Heading back to NY? Hope that devil get his reward!

If they were heading to NY, they were driving in the wrong direction!

Could have been trying to put distance between him and any cops by going the long way to NYC. That’s a criminal mind but who knows. I’m just speculating on this one. It wasn’t going to end well if that savvy citizen wasn’t so diligent.

Details coming out. Apparently a good Samaritan spotted the car, followed (and filmed), called 911 and gave them the tag number. This allowed them to have the E-ZPass cameras flag the car on the pike as it went by.

Perp's family is going on about how he's a poor mentally disabled man who just needs some love and forgiveness... meanwhile, who the hell was driving his car? This a$$hole had help.

He also has a history of A&B on a child under 14 from two years ago. I also wonder why he is not rotting in prison right now instead of kidnapping little girls.
