Kidnapped Richmond mom found in son’s car trunk

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)–A Richmond man has been arrested and charged with kidnapping his mother.

He transported her over state lines.

South Carolina troopers tell CBS 6 that 20-year old Regelio Lopez abducted his mother in Richmond around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

His car was spotted at a rest stop in Orangeburg about five hours later.

When they searched the car, they found his mother in the trunk.

Her injuries were not life-threatening.

On Wednesday, sources told CBS 6’s Chelsea Rarrick that Lopez’s mother was back home and doing well.

When CBS 6 went to Lopez’s home a woman answered saying she was the victim’s sister, but did not have a comment on the arrest.

Richmond police confirm that Lopez has been charged with abduction.
