AMARILLO - Shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday morning a Potter County deputy was traveling on I-40 West of Amarillo and ran a license plate on a white Dodge pick-up. The license plate check came back showing the driver of the truck was involved in a kidnapping charge.

The truck was pulled over and the driver was identified as Max Kozak, who was a person wanted for a kidnapping charge out of California. The passenger was identified as a white female, 16 year old Amber Woolwine, a reported runaway from California. Woolwine was reported missing since June 11 of this year, and was believed to be in the company of Kozak.

Kern County Sheriff's Office in Bakersfield, CA, believes Max Kozak is an alias and are attempting to learn his real name at this time. 

Kern County detectives are traveling to Amarillo to interview the suspect. Max Kozak was booked into the Potter County Detention Center to await arraignment on the charges from California. 

Amber is safe and is awaiting to be taken back to California to be reunited with her family.
