New Hampshire State Police Detectives received a request from Swanzey Police, asking for assistance with a reported kidnapping in the early hours of March 19. An AMBER Alert went out for two teenage girls shortly after. 

According to the reports, Cameron Snody, 18, from Fort Worth, Texas flew, to New Hampshire and met up with a 17-year-old Swanzey girl he’d messaged online.

Snody allegedly stole the victim’s brother’s 2006 Saturn Ion and drove the victim and her 15-year-old friend to New York City. There, they made contact with a 12-year-old girl, who told family members that they were traveling northbound.

The remarkable and bizarre arrest took place at about 10:15 a.m. on I-91 near Exit 23 in Rocky Hill in Hartford, where Connecticut State Police troopers staged a coordinated effort to detain Snody and locate the missing girls.

Snody was taken into custody without incident, and the two girls were transported to a local hospital, where it was determined that the 12- and 17-year-old girls were unharmed.

Snody is charged in New Hampshire with two counts of kidnapping and theft by unauthorized taking. He is currently being held on $500,000 bond in Connecticut while awaiting extradition.
