California teen safe, kidnapper killed in shootout in Idaho

Thank God she is OK, but her life has been shattered, all because of a freak job

Missing California teen Hannah Anderson has been found safe in Idaho, while her suspected abductor James Lee DiMaggio has been killed, San Diego County Sheriff’s officials say.

San Diego Sheriff William D. Gore said San Diego sheriff’s authorities have notified Hannah’s father that she was rescued. “He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his daughter,” Gore said.

“She appears well and was rescued and will be transported to a hospital in Idaho,” Gore said.

Forty-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed by FBI tactical agents after a campsite was spotted from the air, according to Gore. Gore declined to discuss details of DiMaggio’s death, saying authorities in Idaho will release details at a news conference planned for Saturday evening.

Federal and local law enforcement spent Saturday combing through Idaho’s rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in search of Hannah and her suspected kidnapper, 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio.

According to Fox40, DiMaggio, 40, was killed around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
