Authorities have apprehended a suspect in the Oct. 8 abduction and possible sexual assault of a Cody, Wyo., girl.
A Sunday evening news release from Dave Joly, a spokesman with Federal Bureau of Investigation's Denver offices, said officials arrested a man in Belgrade in connection with the case.
The release did not go into detail about the arrest or the suspect, nor did not include his name.
"Further details will be made available in the coming days by the Park County and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in Cody," Joly wrote.
Gallatin County Detention Facility inmate records show that a man named Jesse Paul Speer, 40, was booked into the jail at 11:15 p.m. Saturday. The records say the FBI was the arresting agency and that he is being held on a $2 million bond on a warrant out of Wyoming.
Officials wouldn't confirm if Speer was being held in connection to the abduction or another case.
Wyoming officials sent out an alert to law enforcement, including agencies in Montana, at about 11:20 a.m. Sunday morning that the suspect and his vehicle had been picked up.
On its Facebook page, the Wyoming Highway Patrol confirmed the arrest.
"Cody Police Department has announced that the suspect and vehicle (white Toyota 4Runner) involved in the child abduction case in Cody has been captured," the patrol said in a Sunday afternoon post. "Thank you for all of your assistance and information!"
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been in charge of releasing information on the case since earlier this week.
A man lured the 11-year girl into a Toyota 4-Runner near a popular recreation center in Cody by asking her to help him find a lost puppy, the Cody Police Department said.
The girl told investigators that he flashed a gun and told her to get into the vehicle before driving her to a popular hunting area outside of town.
Hunters found the girl walking down a nearby road later that evening and a multi-state search for abductor began.
The FBI and Cody authorities have released little information about what happened during the abduction but, over the last week, have released more suspect information, including a description of the man provided by the girl and a description of the 4-Runner he was driving.
More information will be reported as it becomes available.
