PARK COUNTY, Colo. — Sheriff’s office investigators say they found a female kidnap victim from Georgia and put her on an airplane to go back home Thursday.

They located the victim and suspect Michael Dempsey, 35, in the South Park Ranches Subdivision of Park County Wednesday. Deputies acted on information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Dempsey is in jail without bond on a kidnapping arrest warrant out of Georgia.

The 14-year-old girl was reported missing June 25 from Hazlehurst, Georgia. Deputies said she was in good physical condition.

“The Park County Sheriff’s Office is glad to have reunited the victim to her family,” a statement says.
