MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Federal agents have captured a Michigan kidnapping suspect who spent almost 16 years on the run.

The FBI’s Milwaukee and Detroit offices issued identical news releases announcing that agents and police arrested 46-year-old Kimberly Lee Johns Friday at her home in Marathon, Wisconsin.

The release said Johns allegedly kidnapped someone in Allen Park, Michigan, in May 2000. The abduction lasted several days and covered multiple states before the victim escaped and Johns was arrested.

Johns escaped from custody in September 2000 and had been a fugitive since.

The release didn’t elaborate. A spokesman for the FBI’s Milwaukee office referred questions to the Detroit office. A spokeswoman there declined to comment.

No record of Johns could be found in online federal court records.
