SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A woman who was 15 when she disappeared 10 years ago from her California home has contacted police and says she was held against her will for years.

The Santa Ana Police Department said Wednesday that they have booked her captor, 41-year-old Isidro Garcia, on suspicion of kidnapping for rape, lewd acts with a minor and false imprisonment.

Police say she was dating Garcia in 2004, when she was 15.

Police say that after assaulting her mother, Garcia drugged the girl and drove her to a house in Compton where he locked her in a garage.

Over the coming months, police say he provided the girl with fake identification and used physical and emotional abuse to prevent her from fleeing.

The woman, now 25, came forward to police after finding her sister on Facebook.
