Charlotte Sena

A man accused of abducting Charlotte Sena, 9, from a New York state campground was identified after police matched a fingerprint on a ransom note left at the girl's home Monday morning a break that led to the man's arrest and Charlotte's rescue after an exhaustive two-day search.

Police were monitoring the Sena family home when a person pulled up to the house and dropped the note in the mailbox, Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a news conference late Monday. Investigators around 2:30 p.m. matched a fingerprint on the letter to Craig Nelson Ross Jr., who was in a database from a 1999 DWI case.

Hours later, SWAT teams raided a camper where Ross, 47, lived behind his mother's home in Saratoga County, less than 20 miles from the state park where Charlotte vanished Saturday. "After some resistance," Ross was arrested, Hochul said.

Charlotte was discovered hidden in a cabinet and appeared to be physically unharmed, Hochul said. She was taken to a local hospital, as is customary in such cases.
