Missing Indiana Teen Found In Nebraska; Colorado Man Jailed

The Nebraska State Patrol says troopers find a missing 13-year-old girl from Indiana and arrest a Colorado man following a traffic stop on Interstate 80.

Wednesday afternoon, NSP was notified by the Lafayette, Indiana Police Department that the missing teen was believed to be traveling through Nebraska with an adult man.

About 20 minutes later, a trooper located the suspect vehicle, a Ford F-150, as it was traveling westbound on I-80 near Kearney and pulled it over.

During the stop, the trooper located the girl hiding in the pickup.

The Patrol says the driver, 20-year old Kyle Miotke of Elizabeth, Colorado, was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The Lafayette Police Department then acquired an arrest warrant for Miotke on several additional charges, including promotion of sexual trafficking of a younger child, kidnapping a victim less than 14 years of age, performing sexual conduct in the presence of a minor, inappropriate communication with a child via electronic device, and dissemination of matter harmful to minors.

Troopers notified Miotke of the additional charges Thursday.

He is in the Buffalo County Jail.
