California kidnapping victim rescued in Coeur d’Alene
A California kidnapping victim was rescued in Coeur d’Alene today after about a month missing.
A cell phone helped locate the 35-year-old woman at 4304 Bourbon Street about 2 p.m., where Kootenai County Sheriff’s deputies found her with Michael H. Luhdorff, 46. Luhdorff was jailed on a second-degree kidnapping charge.
The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department, south of Fresno, told the sheriff’s department of the possible location about 12:45 p.m. and expect to have an arrest warrant for Luhdorff by Monday, according to the sheriff’s department.
Luhdorff is a suspect in previous kidnappings in California and has a criminal history that includes drugs and theft convictions, the sheriff’s department said.
