According to Ohio Highway Patrol (OHP), a commercial truck driver is facing felony kidnapping charges after two missing teens were found in Ohio over the weekend.
30-year-old Darien Lakeith McKinley, of Georgia, is now facing a kidnapping charge and is being held at the Wood County Jail.
Investigators say the caretaker of a rest area, along Interstate 75 in Wood County, found the first of McKinley's two alleged victims on Saturday afternoon.
The 17-year-old female, from Kentucky, claimed that she had just been released by her kidnapper after being held captive for several days.
The teen also reported that her "captor" still had another victim with him.
An hour-and-a-half later, troopers located McKinley on Interstate 75 in Shelby County.
At the time of his arrest McKinley was found with a second missing juvenile, a 16-year-old girl.
OHP and the FBI in Toledo and Dayton are investigating the girls' kidnapping as a possible case of human trafficking.
Officials say federal charges are still possible.
