Man now charged in January case involving missing girl from Rowan County

ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Salisbury Police have now filed charges against a man who allegedly took a 15-year-old girl from her home in Salisbury in early January.

Eduardo Carlos Mendez, 22, of Sunset Drive in Salisbury, is charged with abduction of children, felonious restraint, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Bond was set at $500,000.

Keiry Nalleli Serrano was found in Texas in January with Mendez after being missing for approximately two weeks.

Because Keiry willingly left home with her boyfriend, this was not being considered a kidnapping case and an Amber Alert was not issued.
