ATLANTA (AP) — The FBI says a North Carolina man reported missing from his home days ago was the target of a kidnapping plot, and he has been rescued at an apartment complex in southeast Atlanta.
More than half a dozen federal agents remained at the scene early today where an elite FBI team rescued Frank Arthur Janssen just before noon yesterday.
The two-story townhomes with brick and wood siding are next-door to a federal penitentiary, and the razor wire that rings the prison can be seen from the townhomes.
The FBI says Janssen was reported missing April 5 from his Wake Forest, N.C., home.
Law enforcement officials plan a news conference later today in Wake Forest.
