SANTEE, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina troopers say they have taken a Virginia man into custody after finding his mother in the trunk of his car at a rest area on Interstate 95.

The Highway Patrol said its officers were looking for the Cadillac after being told it was involved in a kidnapping in Virginia Beach, Va.

Troopers spotted the car in a rest area near Santee around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and took the driver into custody. The mother was found in the trunk, and authorities say she did not appear to suffer life-threatening injuries.

The Highway Patrol has turned the suspect over to Orangeburg County sheriff’s deputies, who have not released any information about the case.
