GILMAN CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kidnapping charges have been filed against a 23-year-old man accused of leaving a northwest Missouri home with a 15-year-old girl.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol issued an endangered person advisory for Bailey Ann Summers, who was last seen Thursday leaving a Gilman City home with 23-year-old Elijah McPike. Gilman City is about 100 miles northeast of Kansas City.
Harrison County Sheriff Josh Eckerson said Friday a recent protection order prohibits McPike from contacting Summers. The Harrison County prosecutor’s office says McPike was charged Friday with kidnapping and violating a protection order.
Eckerson says Kansas authorities have also become involved in the search because McPike’s cellphone signal was located late Thursday in Edwardsville, Kan.
McPike may be driving a silver 2001 Dodge Ram extended cab truck with Missouri license plates 5DB857.
