around 1:30 this morning. we've been getting updates on the story throughout the night. that includes new information about the alleged abductor delvin barnes in custody now. we also have news about how police tracked them down. it's fascinating. we have team coverage in philadelphia and maryland we start with nbc10's katy zachry, she's live right now. katy, what do we know? >> reporter: hi, chris. we're in north philadelphia where carlesha's mother lived we want to stay a good distance away from the family's home just to respect their privacy. of course, they have been through so much. we've been in touch with family members who told us when carlesha arrived back here in philadelphia. she will come here to be reunited with so many relatives. let's show you her picture that's been posted on our website and air for days now. the family has been very cooperative with us throughout the entire process. so i reached out to them this morning to see if anyone wanted to speak.
some family members tell us that carlesha is home. she is safe. they won't say where she is. but they will say, she is expecting and wants to talk to the media later this morning. and wants to share her comments of what happened. sources close to the investigation tell me she is at home with her family. again, family members are telling me that is not the case. either way, it's very clear, relatives want to be by themselves with carlesha this morning. we are respecting that. as soon as she's ready to talk, we'll bring it to you. reporting live in north philadelphia, katy zachry, "nbc10 news." they were rejoicing last night. carlesha's family celebrated at a police news conference. you can see the excitement in everyone's afaces. her mother gave a big hug to detective jim sloan there, he's the investigator who made her a promise. >> he sat in my kitchen in front of me, i'm bringing your
daughter home. i'm drinking your daughter home. and he brought my baby home. >> that is awesome. this morning, we know that carlesha freeland-gaither is back with her family in philadelphia. >> now, carlesha was found three days after she was abducted in philadelphia's germantown section. police discovered her 113 miles away from her home in jessup, maryland. and they took her alleged abductor in custody. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal is there. randy, you said the suspect is wanted in another abduction last month. tell us about that. >> reporter: are yeah, delvin barnes' family told us he's always had problems with women in his life. he's the subject of another abduction. this time in virginia, a 16-year-old girl. authorities down in charles city, virginia, that's near richmond. say they too, are tracking barnes. they think he was involved in a brutal rape of a 16-year-old back in october. the details of this alleged crime are horrid.

he will likely make a court appearance but officials in virginia say he will likely about arraigned there to face murder charges. the search for carlesha was made especially difficult because of the fact that police say there was no prior connection between the victim and her alleged abductor. the key to the case, two different surveillance videos, the first showing the victim being snatched off the street. the second appeared to show delvin barnes buying snacks where the victim's atm card was used. authorities recognized barnes as a suspect there. they called philly police. investigators tracked barnes car, arrested him and saved carlesha. and our coverage continues throughout the morning as we track the movement of delvin barnes and carlesha. at 4:45. we have a video time lime showing the time line of the
