An American kidnapper wanted by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was captured by Mexican police on Sunday, while the 14-year-old girl hostage was rescued unharmed, Mexico City's General Procuratorate of Justice said in a statement.

The kidnapper, identified as 35-year-old Hector Guerrero Castillo, was accused of abduction and statutory rape against his victim, whose identity was not revealed for her protection.

Guerrero lured the Idaho-born adolescent to run away with him to Mexico in October after he learned that she had problems with her family, the statement said.

Weeks later, her father reported the case to FBI after he received an e-mail from his daughter saying all is well, which helped track them down in Mexico.

Mexican police found Guerrero in his residence in Tlalnepantla, near the capital of Mexico City, where the girl had been held captive for over a month.

Mexico's public security authorities ordered Guerrero to be detained in a local detention center. He would be extradited to the United States to face charges of abduction and statutory rape against minors.
