‘Mother’s instincts’: NM woman chased abductor

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A mother who chased down a man and ran into his car after he grabbed her 4-year-old says her “mother’s instincts” kicked in when she launched her pursuit.

Melissa Torrez told The Associated Press today she began her chase “without any feeling” and was focused only on getting her daughter back as the abductor led her on a high-speed chase throughout Albuquerque on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old mother of three says as soon as others in the apartment complex told her a man took her daughter she jumped in the car. Her daughter was later found unharmed not far from their apartment.

Police arrested 31-year-old David Hernandez the next day and charged him with kidnapping and child abuse.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
