State troopers arrested a California man Friday and recovered a missing 15-years-old girl from Illinois.
Nebraska State Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said at 9:10 a.m. Friday, the NSP received information regarding a vehicle believed to be driven by a man sought by Illinois authorities. The subject was believed to be traveling with a 15-year-old female, for whom an endangered missing advisory was issued Thursday in Illinois.
About 15 minutes later, a trooper found the vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, at the westbound I-80 rest area near York.
The driver, Chandler Saso, 42, of Yuba City, Calif. was arrested on a warrant from Illinois. The girl was placed into protective care.
Saso is in the Hall County jail for the arrest warrant from Illinois, and more charges from York County are pending, Thomas said.
