The victims were located a few minutes later at a residence in the area, investigators said.

The victims were not harmed after the abduction and have been reunited with family, according to CHP.

The second suspect, Juan Santos Martinez, is described as a 40-year-old Hispanic male, 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
