According to the Hattiesburg Police Department, a female identified as Flor Esmeralda Turcio-Arias walked into the police office last Thursday and said that she had been abducted from her residence in Florida.

Hattiesburg Police went back with the woman to the residence and found two men and after questioning charged them with conspiracy to commit kidnapping. Charged were Ruperto Flores, 57, and Castillo Uriel, 31.

Federal officials continue to investigate the case.

It started at a home on Panama City Beach, where a witness said Turcio-Arias was washing her car when two men drove up and forced her into a vehicle and drove away.
