Man arrested, McKinney kidnapping victim still missing

McKinney police have arrested a man they believe is involved in the kidnapping of a woman from an apartment complex Sunday morning, but the woman is still missing.

Jabrice Davun Ortega was arrested, police said on Wednesday, and will be charged with kidnapping.

Minetssy Sanchez, a 28-year-old woman from Princeton, Texas, was inside a black 2007 Nissan Sentra with the license plate FYM0637 when the car was stolen from The Gables apartment complex on 1500 Eldorado Pkwy Sunday.

Witnesses at the scene identified the suspect as Ortega, 29. Police believe he and Sanchez know each other.

Sanchez's brother, Zahary Escandon, contacted WFAA via Facebook and says according to Sanchez's friend she was "walking to the car when she observed a young black male run inside the car and take off with my sister [Sanchez] inside," Escandon says.

"She said my sister was screaming and banging on the window, but she didn't get to the car soon enough."

McKinney police posted the following photos on their Facebook page of the missing car, victim and suspect.

The stolen car had been recovered by 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Sanchez has been entered into the Texas Crime Information Center as missing/endangered while detectives continue to search for her.

McKinney Police Department asks that anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Sanchez please
contact Detective Jose Quiles at 972-547-2717 or jquiles@mckinneytexas.org.
