Ohio Teen Found Safe After Alleged Abduction by Boyfriend, Suspect in Custody

In a recent development, a 15-year-old Ohio teen, Kaylee Cope, who had gone missing and was the subject of an Amber Alert, has been found safe. According to authorities, Kaylee was allegedly abducted by her 17-year-old boyfriend, Jeffery Gimenez, but is now safe and sound.

The ordeal began when Kaylee’s mother, Heather Zogleman, reported her missing around 6 a.m. on Saturday, stating that Kaylee had left their home earlier in the night and couldn’t be reached by phone. Grove City Police initiated a search for Kaylee, with concerns growing as it was revealed she was with Gimenez.

Police discovered a troubling video posted by Gimenez, showing him with a handgun and making threatening remarks toward Kaylee. This heightened concerns for Kaylee’s safety, leading to warrants being issued for Gimenez’s arrest on charges of robbery and felony kidnapping. Authorities considered Gimenez to be possibly armed and dangerous.

Fortunately, Kaylee was located unharmed, and Gimenez was taken into custody. Prior to this incident, Gimenez had been wanted for previous offenses, including kidnapping Kaylee. The search for the pair involved a collaborative effort from law enforcement agencies, including the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and Grove City Police.

Before their safe recovery, Gimenez and Kaylee were last seen in a silver Honda sedan with tinted windows, believed to be stolen. The recovery of a stolen vehicle connected to the case provided crucial leads for authorities.

This incident underscores the importance of swift action in Amber Alert cases and the collaborative efforts of law enforcement agencies in ensuring the safety and well-being of missing individuals. The swift resolution of this case brings relief to Kaylee’s family and the community at large. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the abduction to ensure justice is served.
