MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A truck driver from Utah is accused of holding a 19-year-old relative against her will while the two traveled across country.

The 53-year-old man from Salt Lake City was arrested last week at a truck scale outside of Moorhead, Minn.

A Minnesota state trooper discovered a Florida warrant for the man's arrest. The man was charged in Clay County court with kidnapping, false imprisonment and domestic abuse.

Prosecutor Brian Melton tells KFGO-AM the woman was held captive for seven months while she traveled with the man.

The woman, who was in the truck, asked to be taken to a Moorhead homeless shelter.

Unconditional bail for the man was set at $1 million. He remained in jail Monday.

The Associated Press is not naming the man to avoid identifying the woman.
