The fingerprint found on the ransom note matched one from a 1999 DWI in Saratoga, Hochul said. The match led police to the home of Ross’ mother, where he was found in a camper parked in the rear Sunday evening, the governor said.

“After some resistance, the suspect was taken into custody and immediately the little girl was found in a cabinet, covered and she was rescued,” Hochul said. "She knew that she was being rescued. She knew that she was in safe hands.”

A GoFundMe page has been created to assist Charlotte's family.
