Authorities have arrested a father and daughter who they say kidnapped and robbed a North Las Vegas woman at gunpoint, before driving her across state lines to California and holding her against her will.

The woman, identified only as being in her 40s, survived the ordeal and was found by military personnel near the Edwards Air Force Base outside of Los Angeles earlier this week.

"She's very lucky to be alive", said Captain Eddie Hernandez of the Major Crimes Bureau of the LASD.

Hernandez said the kidnapped woman was known to her captors, but did not elaborate further other than to say they are not related.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office confirmed that the pair face charges of kidnapping to commit robbery, kidnapping from outside the state, attempted murder, forcible rape, and three counts of first-degree robbery involving ATMs, according to NBC 4 and KTLA.

The woman was cold, disoriented and suffering from exposure to cold.

The LA County Sheriff's office is working with the North Las Vegas Police Department and the FBI on the case, and the two suspects may face federal charges, Hernandez said.
