IDABEL, Okla. -- A missing 11-year-old Texas girl has been found safe in southeastern Oklahoma and the man suspected of taking her is in custody.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Jasmine Bazan was found Tuesday morning with 41-year-old Kenneth Wilcox.

Lubbock police say Wilcox took Jasmine, 9-year-old Angel Contreras, 15-year-old Lashawnda Theriac and his son during the weekend -- with plans to visit Six Flags Over Texas.

Police say he later left his son with his ex-wife in Amarillo.

Angel and Lashawnda were found safe near Idabel last night with a cousin of Wilcox after Angel called his father.

Lubbock Police Capt. Greg Stevens says Wilcox and the 11-year-old girl were located in a vehicle in a rural area near Shinewell, Okla.

Wilcox is being held on a warrant for aggravated kidnapping. Bond is $750,000.

Stevens says plans are to reunite the three children with their family as soon as possible.
