GREAT BEND, Kan. (CBS/KWCH) Adam Joseph Longoria was taken into custody Friday morning; he is described as a "person of interest" in the death of Kansas 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt.
Longoria, also known as "Rocco," was caught by the Kansas Highway Patrol on I-70 near Salina, about 80 miles away from Great Bend, according to CBS affiliate KWCH.
Longoria was allegedly driving a 2002 white Ford Explorer which was reported stolen from Venture Corporation near Great Bend early Friday morning.
Longoria is currently being held in Barton County on a warrant for the stolen vehicle.
DeBolt went missing Saturday, August 21. Her parents said that she left their Great Bend home around 11:00 pm to go to a party, but did not come home at her midnight curfew. Her body was found burned just outside town days later.
Thursday, authorities served a search warrant on Longoria's home. In an interview, he told KWCH that he was taken in for questioning, but allowed to go home once the police search was complete.
A statewide alert was issued for law enforcement to be on the lookout for Longoria Friday morning.
