CASCADE, Idaho - San Diego County Sheriff's officials say the man suspected of abducting 16-year-old Hannah Anderson has been killed in Idaho and the teen has been found safe.

San Diego Sheriff William D. Gore said Hannah's father was "elated" his daughter was found alive. They are expected to be reunited shortly.

More details were forthcoming, but 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed by an FBI tactical agent about 4 p.m. PDT near Morehead Lake. The teenage girl was found alive near him.

"She appears well and was rescued and will be transported to a hospital in Idaho," Gore said.

Federal and local law enforcement spent Saturday combing through Idaho's rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in search of Hannah and her suspected kidnapper, DiMaggio.

DiMaggio is suspected of killing Hannah's mother, 44-year-old Christina Anderson, and her 8-year-old brother Ethan Anderson, whose bodies were found Sunday night in DiMaggio's burning house in California near the Mexico border.

DiMaggio's car was found Friday morning about 40 miles east of the tiny town of Cascade, parked where the dirt road ends and the Sand Creek trailhead enters the wilderness area.
