During the seven days that 15-year-old Chloe Rodriguez, of southern France, was held captive, she memorized details – her kidnapper, his car, its license plate -- but she did not try to defy the man's orders for fear of being killed, reported.

Chloe was found in Germany, tied up in the trunk of a car Friday afternoon after police stopped her kidnapper during a routine traffic stop, reported. She had disappeared the week before, on Nov. 9, after leaving her home by scooter to go to a friend’s house.

Her scooter was found six miles away with her all belongings except for her helmet.


Violette Rodriguez told reporters Friday that she was elated by the news. “Today is too beautiful. There will be two birthdays for my little Chloe,” she said in French.

She added: “This man who did her so much harm -- there is justice, and justice will be rendered. But I thank him anyway, because he kept her alive.”


Cheers erupted in the village where the family lives. Residents were relieved after a week of combing the back roads and the many abandoned stone houses that make the region seem so picturesque and innocent.

...Chloe had memorised details about her kidnapper, his car and its number-plate, but never defied his orders over her seven-day ordeal because she was scared he would kill her, reported Metro France.

Her parents said their daughter was feeling well despite being physically exhausted and regularly crying, reported RTL. Meanwhile Chloe’s alleged kidnapper was being held in a German prison.

The 32-year-old man was released from prison in September after being convicted of physical and sexual assault in 2009 against six women, who had been traveling alone in their rural communities.

He had been given the recommended psychiatric treatment in jail, the man’s lawyer said, reported RTL. But the man allegedly failed to check in with his probation officer after he was released.
