Two people are behind bars for kidnapping a 15-year-old girl.

Late Thursday night, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department raided a Cortland home and rescued Oklahoma-teen Skye Griggs. Police say she disappeared Tuesday, Griggs was last seen leaving Tecumseh with a couple strangers in a late model black Buick. Phone records suggested she might be headed to the Stateline.

Sure enough, she was. As part of the raid, police arrested 18-year-old Jared Lucero, and 21-year-old Mandy Forth. Police believe Griggs met the couple over the internet. Lucero is charged with criminal sexual abuse and child abduction. Forth faces aiding and abetting charges.
