On the night of December 11, 2010, the month-long manhunt for Charles Berlinghoff came to an end -- and investigators couldn't be more thrilled.
Cops say Berlinghoff kidnapped his neice, 15-year-old Jean Marie Berlinghoff, from her home in Redding, Calif. on November 10, 2010.
But while one of her cousins was shopping in downtown San Francisco, cops say she noticed Jean and Charles outside of a Best Buy store in the Mission District.
After calling 9-1-1, officers responded and quickly apprehended Charles Berlinghoff, and placed young Jean Marie into protective custody.
Investigators tell AMW that Charles resembled the mugshot distributed to the media, and has done nothing to change his extremely distinct appearance.
