Local officers have issued a kidnapping charge against a Catawba County man they say has taken a 15-year-old girl possibly to Chicago.
Laura Beam of Stacy Hill Road reported late Saturday afternoon that her niece, 15-year-old Brittney Paige Stevens, who lives with Beam, left home between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. and had not returned.
The teen is believed to be in the company of Edgar Escalerra Soto, 24, of Hickory in a 1991 white Chevrolet Silverado truck that was stolen in Catawba County, according to Sgt. Dan Shook of the McDowell County Sheriff's Office. The vehicle's tag number is TVE-6700. Shook said Catawba County authorities have issued motor vehicle theft warrants against Soto.
The teen is considered a runaway, Shook stated, having left the residence with Soto of her own accord. However, due to her age, this is a criminal case, and the sergeant has issued a warrant for Soto for second-degree kidnapping.
"Soto is also believed to be an illegal alien," Shook stated.
He added that the two are possibly in the Chicago area.
