    TX - Decades later, survivors of San Antonio kidnapping meet officers who saved them

    Terrific story. While some do not, we do need to be reminded that things often do turn out well,
    thanks to excellent work by LE - as was the case here.

    Decades later, survivors of S.A. kidnapping meet officer who saved them (with video)

    Crystal and Xavier were kidnapped in San Antonio by their babysitter. Eighteen hours had passed, but the vehicle description was out. The 13-year-old suspect ran away from a halfway house and answered an ad to babysit the kids.

    Along I-37 Deputy Steve Gonzales spotted the vehicle. He attempted to pull the teen over who displayed a pistol and even fired the weapon. She also pulled up one of the kids to show the deputy. Gonzales said he backed off. A short time later the 13-year-old girl crashed the vehicle.
