Charlotte County authorities on Friday were looking for a 21-year-old woman they believe was abducted from her home.

Denise Amber Lee is thought to have been taken on Thursday from North Port, where her husband found their two young children alone in the home.

Later Thursday, authorities arrested Michael Lee King, 37, who they believe snatched Lee, the daughter of a Charlotte County sheriff's lieutenant. But there has been no sign of her.

Authorities said King was evoking his right to remain silent and was not cooperating with police.

Authorities said they had no indication whether Lee knew King and had not talked about a motive.

The search was expected to conclude at sundown and start again Saturday morning.
