    Default Girl rescued safely hours after being abducted

    An FBI agent stands near a vehicle after a high-speed chase that ended in Monroe, Washington, Thursday.

    MERCER ISLAND, Washington (AP) -- A 9-year-old girl who was snatched from a school bus stop was rescued about six hours later following a high-speed chase, and a man was taken into custody, police said.

    The child was reunited with her family late Thursday night, Mercer Island Police spokeswoman Jennifer Franklin said.

    The girl was grabbed in an upscale Seattle suburb after she returned from school Thursday afternoon. About an hour and a half later, her father got a phone call asking for a ransom. He called police.

    A ransom drop-off was arranged at a mall in the suburb of Bellevue, where law enforcement agents were waiting. They followed the abductor's Ford Explorer to Seattle, and eventually realized the girl was in the vehicle.

    FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs said the ransom money was recovered.
