Police in Pembroke Pines, Florida are looking for a man who they say kidnapped an 18-year-old. Jaddier T. Sanchez, 37, has Nicole Martinez captive, cops said Sunday.
According to the police account, Martinez’s parents arrived home this morning at 12:30 p.m. Sanchez was there. At gunpoint, he forced the parents and Martinez into one of the parent’s 2007 red Dodge ram pick-up truck with the Florida Tag #PYDC13, officers said. Sanchez drove them to banks to withdraw money from ATMs, cops said.
He allegedly then went to the city of Belle Glade in Palm Beach County, where he left the parents on the side of the road, but he kept Martinez against her will.
Cops are vague about Sanchez’s link to the family. They only say the parents knew him through their daughter.
Sanchez is described as having large tattoos around his neck. Martinez is 5’3″, weighing 120 pounds, with black shoulder-length wavy hair, and tattoos on her “right/left” forearm, cops said. She was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and orange/black cheetah print shorts.
The suspect was last seen driving the Dodge Ram, officers said.
