Texas Girl, 8, Found Safe After 'Heroes' Lead Police to Alleged Kidnapper

Salem Sabatka

Ft Worth Police Department/Facebook Salem Sabatka, 8, was kidnapped on May 18 while walking down the street with her mother in a Ft. According to the Star-Telegram, that case was dismissed.

According to police, the mother tried to jump into the vehicle to get her daughter, but she was pushed out.

Police have not released the name of the suspect but said he is a 51-year-old male who is not related to Salem. Webb was booked into the Tarrant County Jail on an aggravated kidnapping charge just before 6 a.m. Sunday.

He was also arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price had earlier encouraged anyone with information to call police, "We are praying for Salem, her family and the entire community".

"From the get-go, she was filing affidavits of non-prosecution", Vance said. We will keep providing updates. Later, she became "uncooperative", he said.

Anyone who sees Salem, the suspect, or the suspect vehicle is urged to call 911 immediately, or call the Fort Worth Police Department at 817-392-4222 if you have any other information that could help investigators.

At around 2:20 a.m., police said that after receiving a tip about the location of the missing girl they were able to find her safe at the WoodSpring Suites in Forest Hill. "I'm here to report that Salem has been found safe", Calzada told reporters Sunday.

"It's a phenomenal feeling", Calzada said in the press briefing. "We had citizens that went out of their way and helped not just the police department but a family put some great closure to what we have going on right now".

Calzada said two people going to church spotted the suspect's auto at a local hotel.

Salem had been walking with her mother when a vehicle approached the two.

The youngster had been out on a walk with her mother Saturday evening in Fort Worth's Ryan Place neighborhood when a man grabbed the girl and put her in his vehicle.

Police issued an AMBER Alert and shared photos of Salem and Webb's alleged vehicle on social media. The kidnapping was captured on a doorbell camera (video below), which shows a dark gray 4-door sedan with alloy wheels and paper plates taking off.

In Tyler, he was arrested on charges of terroristic threats, evading arrest, and drug possession.
