Missing teen found with 40-year-old man from Ohio in North Huntingdon Township motel

NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa. — A 16-year-old girl reported missing from Hopewell Township, Beaver County, is safe after police said she was found with a 40-year-old man from Ohio inside a room at the Hiland Terrace Motel in North Huntingdon Township.

Robert Easley is facing corruption of minors and other charges after police said he was found with the girl who was reported missing Wednesday morning.

Inside the room, police said they also discovered a handgun Easley isn’t supposed to have because of a prior conviction out of Michigan.

Police found 73 grams of marijuana that the teen girl was allegedly packaging up to sell for Easley.
