Ayvani Perez, the 14-year-old Georgia girl who was taken from her home early Tuesday morning, has been found alive, according to police. ABC News has the details of her abduction:
The teen was in her pajamas when police say two men broke in the back door of her Ellenwood, Ga., home Tuesday at 2:15 a.m. looking for jewelry and money. When Perez's mother said the family didn't have any, the suspects shot the family dog and fled the home with Perez, according to police.
Police said the home invasion was apparently random. NBC News reported earlier today that the abductors initially were seeking $10,000 in ransom money, but later raised that demand to $100,000. Two suspects are in police custody, the Clayton County police chief said, but the investigation is still active and the police are searching for other suspects.
