(CNN) -- The national manhunt for California Amber Alert suspect James DiMaggio and his alleged 16-year-old captive girl has moved to the Idaho wilderness after horseback riders saw a man and a woman fitting their description, authorities said Friday.

Investigators subsequently found DiMaggio's car hidden by brush, with its license plates removed, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore told reporters. Authorities confirmed the car's ownership by its vehicle identification number, he said.
The vehicle was located in the remote River of No Return Wilderness area in Cascade, Idaho, Ada County sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Dearden said.

The campers and hikers on horseback riders saw the man and woman Wednesday, but they called police after they saw news account that evening, police said.
