A Clayton County teenager who was abducted from her home yesterday morning was safely recovered, authorities announced this afternoon.

Clayton County Sheriff's Office reports 14-year-old Ayvani Perez, who had been taken from her home in Ellenwood, Ga., around 2 a.m. Tuesday, was found in Conyers. According to Police Chief Greg Porter, Perez has been reunited with her family and was undergoing precautionary health evaluations at a local hospital.

Porter added "more than 150" law enforcement personnel from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Georgia Bureau of Investigations, and Clayton County Sheriff's Office participated in the case. An FBI agent involved in the case said that two suspects are currently in custody. Those include Juan Alberto Rodriguez, a 40-year-old Mexican national being held on immigration charges, and Wildrego Jackson, a 29-year-old Atlanta resident who's been charged with conspiracy to kidnap. WSB-TV reported that Jackson was career felon that had currently been on probation.

A little while ago, 11 Alive producer Beth Sawicki shared this mugshot:

The two abductors yesterday had demanded a $10,000 ransom from Perez's family in exchange for her safe return. Authorities said that the two suspects in the sketches shared yesterday and earlier today are believed to remain at large.
