A missing out on Tennessee teenager was discovered on Thursday, and her adoptive dad was apprehended and charged in connection to her disappearance, authorities stated.
The 14-year-old was found in Wisconsin , after she was reporting missing out on previously this month, Monroe County Sheriff Tommy Jones informed press reporters at a press conference.
Her adoptive daddy, Randall Pruitt, was collared on Thursday, and charged with rape. If Pruitt has a criminal history, the constable stated it was uncertain.
The teen is thought to have actually been “leaving from a bad house scenario, “according to authorities. She was last seen at her house in Madisonville on Jan. 13. 2 days later on, the teenager’s cellular phone pinged 139 miles away in Corbin, Kentucky.
Jones stated info on the pings or why the teenager remained in Wisconsin was not right away clear.
He stated the household was brand-new to the Monroe County location, after moving from Georgia, and noted he does not think the teenager– who is”safe”and in custody and was discovered in” health”– is from Wisconsin.
Pruitt is supposedly set up to appear in court Feb. 5.
