CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- Investigators with the State Highway Patrol say that two missing Cleveland teenagers, located during a traffic stop near Cambridge on Monday, were not kidnapped.
Sgt. Mike Warner of the Cambridge Post said that, while an investigation is ongoing, initial questioning suggests that the two 16-year-old girls willingly left the Cleveland area with four adults on Sunday.
Early Monday morning, the Cambridge Post received word that one of the girls' cellphones had been located on Interstate 70 in Guernsey County. Troopers stopped a silver Nissan SUV just west of the Champion exit on I-70 at around 12:30 a.m. The two girls were found in the vehicle with two adult males, who were in their 30's, and two adult females, who were in their 20's. One male in the vehicle was also wanted on a warrant out of Washington County.
The two girls have now been returned to their parents. Charges have yet to be filed.
