NORTH PORT, Fla. - Charlotte County authorities are looking for a 21-year-old woman who they believe was abducted from her home.

Denise Amber Lee was taken from her North Port home Thursday. Her husband arrived home and found their two young children alone.

Later Thursday, authorities arrested a 37-year-old man who they believe snatched Lee. But there has still been no sign of her.

Authorities have no indication that Lee knew the man, identified as Michael Lee King. They haven't talked about a motive, either.

Lee is the daughter of a Charlotte County sheriff's lieutenant.
