Investigators were looking for 59-year-old John Lee Bailey.

Police say Bailey kidnapped an ex-girlfriend's daughter early Monday morning from Albany, Georgia. Police say bailey raped the victim, then drove her to Panama City.

Once there, Bailey allegedly raped the woman again, but this time she was able to escape and call police.

Bailey is already facing state charges in relation to the kidnapping. He could be looking at federal charges as well.

The FBI was called in because the kidnapping crossed state lines.

Bailey was on probation in Georgia for sexual battery.
