She was held for some 18 hours before she was able to escape.The brave little girl was in a Springs Circle-K with Garcia when she was able to use the phone and call 911.
Garcia fled the store and was arrested by Springs swat team members several hours later at a bus stop.
Garcia will be sentenced in August.
