LOS ANGELES - Authorities say a suburban Las Vegas woman dragged to California by father-and-daughter kidnappers has been found alive after a harrowing, weeklong kidnapping where she was raped, robbed and left for dead in the desert.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials told reporters Friday that Stanley Alfred Lawton and Shaniya Nicole Poche-Lawton dumped the woman near Edwards Air Force Base north of Los Angeles.
Military personnel found her early Wednesday suffering from cold and exposure. She was treated at a hospital. It’s not clear how long she was in the desert.
