LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say they found a 14-year-old girl who has been associated with a man suspected of kidnapping and forcing young girls into prostitution in Southern California.

Upland Sgt. Greg Signorio said Friday that a task force had found the teen unharmed. No other details were immediately available.

The girl’s father, Peter Doesburg, had said he thought his daughter had been abducted by Leroy Bragg.

Bragg was arrested Tuesday and charged with trafficking of a minor, solicitation and other crimes in the abduction of a 13-year-old girl. He was being held Friday on $1.3 million bail.

Upland police have said they don’t have evidence yet that Bragg kidnapped Doesburg’s daughter, but believe she was abducted by people she knew.
