FULTON, Miss.- Authorities have released new information about the couple accused of kidnapping a teenager from Espanola.
Highway Patrol Troopers in Mississippi rescued the teenager Monday.
NBC affiliate WTVA reports highway patrol troopers found the 14-year-old girl when they pulled over a van on Interstate 22 Monday.
Two people, from Georgia, were taken into custody. However, charges have not been filed yet.
