Police say a 20-year-old Yakima woman was found bound and gagged in the trunk of a car near the Yakima airport after being kidnapped from her home Thursday.

Police say the woman was taken from her home by her mother’s ex-boyfriend.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reported Friday the 44-year-old man is jailed pending possible charges of burglary and kidnapping.

Police say he broke into the woman’s house, bound and gagged her, and locked her in the trunk of his car. Then he used the woman’s cell phone to send texts to her mother asking her to come to Yakima to talk.

The mother contacted police and asked them to check on her daughter. Police went to the daughter’s house and found the man there, and he led police to the car.
