Woman, 46, accused of kidnapping teen when she was about 19

MACON, Ga. (AP) – A Georgia woman is accused of kidnapping a teenager 27 years ago, when both were about 19 years old.

News outlets report that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested 46-year-old Melinda McSwain on Thursday in the disappearance of 19-year-old Sabrina Perry from Macon in 1991.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that McSwain was arrested at Mercer University by campus police.

She was being held in the Bibb County jail on a charge of kidnapping.

It was not clear whether bond had been set or whether she has an attorney who could speak for her.

A GBI news release says Long was last seen Aug. 14, 1991, at her home in Macon.

It says further “investigative acts” are expected in the next few weeks.
