      Kidnapped Primera girl found in Brownsville

      Dianna Izaguirre

      A crime stoppers tip led authorities to a west Brownsville motel where police found a kidnapped Primera girl and her alleged abductor.

      Authorities stormed a room at the Plaza Square Motel off Central Boulevard and Price Road late Tuesday afternoon.

      Investigators found 14-year-old Diana Izaguirre and Victor Garcia inside the motel room.

      Authorities told Action 4 News that Izaguirre appeared to be unharmed.

      The 14-year-old girl was allegedly abducted by two masked men from the front yard of her parents' Primera home on Monday night prompting an Amber Alert.

      Investigators believe Garcia may have kidnapped the girl in retaliation for her older sister breaking up with him.

      FBI agents initially took custody of Garcia but released him to the custody of Primera and Brownsville police to face state kidnapping charges.

      There was no word on the identity of the second suspect.
