He's praying for her safe return.

"I'm terrified of what's going on with my daughter," he said. "I'm in fear as we're standing here about what could be happening to her."

Huskins says his daughter has no enemies.

Police and search crews from all over the area spread out over Mare Island searching for her, and have called in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice to help.

At the same time, officers converged on the home where Denise was reportedly kidnapped. Sources say her boyfriend was the one who reported the kidnapping about 12 hours after it allegedly happened on Monday morning.

Neighbors say the couple met at Vallejo's Kaiser Permanente where they both work and had no obvious issues. Investigators are not calling her boyfriend a suspect.

Investigators believe his Toyota Camry was used in the kidnapping, and was eventually found in an undisclosed area of Vallejo. Officers won't say how the ransom demand was made, or who made it.

For now, Mike Huskins is waiting for more information and waiting for his daughter to come home.

"I can't imagine anyone would do this. Why would they do this? I don't know," he said.
