A teenage interstate love affair, sparked online on Xbox has now turned into a real life crime.
Police say Lillie Alvarado, 45, traveled from California a week ago, kidnapped a 14-year old girl from her Coeur d'Alene home and took the girl back to Bakersfield to be with her son.
The girl's boyfriend said he wanted her to live with him in California because he thought she was being abused. His mom is now accused of traveling 1,100 miles to make it happen.
When the FBI knocked on an apartment door in Bakersfield, the girl they came for didn't have time to grab her clothes or inhalers. Police say she had been kidnapped four days before by her boyfriend's mom. The girl met her boyfriend, Christian Alvarado, online through Xbox.
Alvarado said the girl claimed she was being abused at home and he wanted to help.
"She told me he was beating her, calling her names," he said.
Last Friday, Lillie Alvarado hopped on a train, traveled from Bakersfield to Spokane, rented a car, drove to Coeur d'Alene and then, according to police, she kidnapped the girl.
