A 14-year old Mount Pleasant girl has been found after being reported missing yesterday. Ruby Zavala was found safe in a field Monday afternoon. The man police believe took her, Jesus Ramirez,22, has been taken into custody.

Ramirez is accused of kidnapping Zavala's 4-year old sister and her mother Sunday but later freed them. The truck he had been driving was found wrecked late Sunday afternoon just west of Mount Pleasant.

Mount Pleasant Police Chief Wayne Isbell said that Ramirez was obsessed with the girl he had secretly been dating. He was charged with Sexual Assault of a Child after the girl's family learned of the relationship and forced them to break up.
