Officers surrounded the home where they say Siemen was tortured a week earlier. The Wolf Creek residence is 20 miles north of Grants Pass, Oregon.

Benjamin Foster was located underneath the house. And authorities tried to get him to surrender. After several hours of a stand-off, he was captured.

During the initial search of the home where Siemens was held, a 68-year-old woman, Tina Marie Jones, was arrested.

 Jones is accused of following Foster as he intentionally drove his car over an embankment. And then giving him a ride back to the property. She and Foster are both being held at the Josephine County Jail.

Police began the manhunt after responding to a home in Grants Pass. The emergency call they received was for an assault. When police arrived, they found a woman in critical condition who had been “bound and severely beaten into unconsciousness,” police said.
