Police: Kidnapped Jonesboro woman found safe

Clayton County police say a missing 23-year-old woman allegedly kidnapped by her boyfriend Wednesday afternoon has been found safe.

Investigators say Caitlyn Payne was looking for a rental home with her mom at the Rivers Edge apartments near the 7000 block of Charleston Court in Jonesboro when 23-year-old Joshua Weaver showed up in a bright orange Dodge Charger. 

An argument started and police say Payne and her mother tried to drive away, but the suspect followed them. Investigators say he eventually blocked in their car, pulled Payne out of her mother's car, and then dragged her to his own car. 

After hours of searching, officials say they made contact with Payne and found her at a location in College Park. According to police, the missing woman was safe and in good physical health. 

Police have active warrants for his arrest on kidnapping and battery. The suspect is described as being 5-feet-9 inches tall with a weight of 150 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. 

Editor's Note: Police said they misidentified the suspect in this alleged kidnapping. The new suspect is named in an additional report
