The Bloomberg family was not at the ranch near rural Meeker, in the western part of the state, when Joseph Beecher allegedly rammed his pickup through its gates and kidnapped the female worker at gunpoint on Wednesday.

Beecher, 48, then forced the woman to drive him in her truck to the Denver area and north to Wyoming, authorities said. Her name was initially released by authorities but redacted in court documents released on Friday.
Beecher was arrested on Thursday with an AR-15 and a handgun in Cheyenne, Wyoming, after investigators were able to trace the woman's iPad to a motel there, an arrest affidavit said. It said the woman was not harmed but also said Beecher kissed her on the forehead and told her she would be dead if she were a man.
Beecher was being held in jail in Cheyenne. No charges had been filed against him yet in Wyoming, according to court records, and it was not known if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
