    NORTH PORT - Police who searched all afternoon for a missing woman announced late Thursday that they had arrested her suspected abductor.
    Michael Lee King, 37, was taken into custody after 9 p.m. Officers found blond hair in his green Chevrolet Camaro, but no sign of Denise Amber Lee, 21.
    This is a scary situation.
    She is married with 2 children and is kidnapped. She makes a frantic 911 call and her perp is found....she isn't.
    Her hair is found in the car.
    Her father is a sheriff.

    Her father, Rick Goff, is a long-time officer here in Charlotte County. This is horrible news! The suspect. Michael Lee King, is being held in North Port (home for the CoralRose case) which is probably the last lucky thing to happen to him.

    Local reports say there is a press conference soon.

    Sometime Thursday evening, King reportedly visited a relative of his who lives off Biscayne Drive. The relative told police he saw a woman tied up in the car. King reportedly asked the relative for a shovel, a gas can and a flashlight, which the relative gave him.

    Police also reported the woman was able to make a call to 911, using her abductor's cell phone without his knowledge. She said she had been kidnapped and was unable to see.

    Lee is believed to be the daughter of a Charlotte County Sheriff's Office employee, according to North Port police. Her family did not know who King was or why he might have abducted Lee.

    WINK News reporter stated that the Suspect is claiming that he was also kidnapped...............and is now refusing to speak without having his attorney present. Also reported, the cousin did not call law enforcement for 30 minutes after seeing the victim tied up in the back of the car.

    Victim's father is known for his work in the Narcotics Division. I doubt that there is any connection, but have a feeling that it could be brought up as a possibility in brainstorming sessions here.

    I'm happy that the relative called the police after King drove off. Before reading the article, I couldn't imagine why he would give King a shovel and a gas can if he saw someone tied up in the car. I was relieved to read the relative gave King those items BEFORE seeing Denise tied up. Michael King sort of looks like actor Tom Sizemore.

    Denise Amber Lee, 21, Kidnapped. Suspect arrested

    NORTH PORT Investigators have resumed the search this morning for Denise Amber Lee, shifting the hunt to an area near the home of Michael King, who has been charged in what authorities say was a kidnapping.

    and

    Lee, 21, is the daughter of Richard Goff, the former head of the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office narcotics bureau. She was reported missing Thursday by her husband, who arrived at their North Port home about 3 p.m. to find the couple's two young children alone. They were unharmed.

    ~much more, including her picture, at link~

    This doesn't look good. I wonder if they guy took her because of her Dad being a narcotics officer. I pray for a good outcome on this.

    The article states that he borrowed a shovel, flashlight and gas can from his cousin saying his lawnmower had broke down. When he drove off the cousin saw a woman tied up in the back seat. The cousin called another relative, who eventually called police.

    You are right. This does not look good.

    Any Criminal record?

    Hi:

    Those of you who are good at searching for arrest warrants...any indication if King has a record as a sex offender?

    I can't find any links to registered sex offenders for this guy, and according to the linked article, there are no criminal records for him either. An ominous finding, is that clothing has been found close to King's home. This isn't looking good.

    "Record searches in Florida and Michigan show no criminal history for King."

    Just now, on the news, they stated that they're searching bodies of water (ie, canals), near where this guy was pulled over because he was found wet from the waist down. Traces of blood as well as a woman's ring was found in the car's backseat.

    Her children are 2 years old and 6 months. I wish the guy would just fess up for the sake of her family!
