Charlotte Sena, 9, is found ALIVE after being ‘abducted for ransom’ as sex offender is taken into custody


Did they find Charlotte?

A 47-year-old man is in custody after Charlotte Sena — a 9-year-old girl who went missing at a state park in Saratoga County — was found hidden in a camper cabinet Monday evening.

Charlotte was taken to an area hospital, but she was safe and healthy, troopers said.

Gov. Kathy Hochul held a news conference Monday night to describe how the girl was found and the man taken into custody.

A ransom note left in the mailbox of Charlotte’s family home in the town of Greenfield is what led officers to her abductor, Hochul said.

The man had pulled up to the mailbox in front of the Sena family home, leaving a note inside, she said.

The note had fingerprints on it, which assisted authorities in tracking down a suspect, Hochul said.

The suspect’s fingerprints were in law enforcement database.

Where was 9 year old Charlotte found?

Around 2:30 p.m., officers matched a fingerprint to that of a man arrested for a DWI in 1999 in Saratoga, she said.

From there, officers found a home where the man — Craig Nelson Ross Jr. — was living, Hochul said.

The home was only two miles away from Charlotte’s home in Greenfield.

Around 6:32 p.m. Monday, officers found a double-wide home with a camper parked behind it where Ross lives, she said.

Troopers moved in and Ross resisted arrest, the governor said. Troopers said he sustained minor injuries during the scuffle.

Charlotte was found covered inside a cabinet inside the camper.

Was Charlotte found alive?

Charlotte appeared to not physically be harmed, but was taken to a hospital, Hochul said.

Charges have not been filed against Ross, but they’re expected. Contrary to earlier reports, Ross is not a registered sex offender.

They also said it is not known at this time whether Ross knew Charlotte or had her under surveillance for any length of time.

‘It’s been a long two days but tonight our prayers have been answered,’ Hochul said.

Charlotte was reunited with her mother, father and two sisters — 4 and 10 years old.

The governor thanked the State Police and others ‘who worked so tirelessly to find Charlotte. It is because of their efforts that Charlotte will be able to return home safe to her family.’
