April 4, 2019 at 6:25 pm


COSTA MESA (CBSLA) — A Costa Mesa aesthetician and her driver were kidnapped in Uganda Tuesday and officials say the culprits are asking for a $500,000 ransom.

CBS2’s Michele Gile reports Ugandan officials don’t want to pay the ransom.

Meanwhile, an elite force is looking for the two.

Kimberly Sue Endicott was excited to tour Africa. She shared her hopes about her trip according to the property manager at the business park where her skincare business is located.

Tourism police in Uganda have identified the Orange County woman as the kidnap victim — she and her guide were kidnapped at gunpoint while they were looking for animals at Queen Elizabeth National Park.

“The police has dispatched an elite squad from tourism police to report to the security team at Queen Elizabeth National Park and to actively pursue a group of four unknown gunman who allegedly kidnapped an American and a Ugandan senior guide who were on an evening game drive,” said one Ugandan official.

Police say the kidnappers continue to use the victims cellphones to call the lodge

The 56-year-old Endicott reportedly has a daughter and granddaughter.

Neighbors told her that the FBI told them, and family, not to say anything for fear that the captors could hear and use against her.
