PITTSBURGH, PA (WSMV) - U.S. Marshals located a missing, endangered Nashville girl unharmed in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Saturday night, and arrest her ex-boyfriend who is accused of kidnapping her.
Maricsa Beltran-Lopez, 16, had been missing since Thursday afternoon when she was picked up from McGavock High School by her ex-boyfriend, German Rodriguezz.
Beltran-Lopez reported her ex-boyfriend police the week before, telling officers Rodriguezz had been harassing her and showing up to her school.
Her family was able to make contact with her Thursday night, but police said the phone call ended abruptly and then the phone was turned off.

The TBI issued an Endangered Child Alert for Beltran-Lopez around 6 p.m. Friday. Metro Police also issued an arrest warrant for Rodriguezz.
Officials said Rodriguezz will remain in-custody during police's investigation into their disappearance. It is unclear if he has been charged with a crime.
