Person of interest released after missing Tonganoxie girls found

Prior to being found, the girls had been spotted in Kansas City, KCTV reports. Tonganoxie law enforcement, however, said they meant to charge Rangel.

Kansas City police confirmed on Tuesday that they were releasing a man they were holding on suspicion he may have been involved in the disappearance of three girls, after the girls were located and determined to be safe early Tuesday morning. The tipster said the Rangel was staying in the company owner's basement along with three girls matching the description of the missing girls.

The FBI confirms that it is assisting Tonganoxie police in the investigation but so far that assistance has been limited to the return of the three missing girls. Rangel told officers he was only trying to help the girls escape what he thought was an abusive environment. The trio ran away August 26th, and had been seen in the Kansas City-area. "My girls could get hurt".

Lt. Jarrod Gill said the search wore on the officers - and on the girls' great aunt and uncle, who have had custody ever since the girls' mother was deemed unfit.

Miller had received a tip on Saturday that the girls might have been with Rangel, who was working for a roofing company.

The case led to broader concerns among lawmakers who learned last week during a Statehouse meeting that more than 70 foster children are missing in Kansas.
