The mother discovered a note from her daughter saying she had left with the 33-year-old man. The mother and the other man locked the apartment and searched for the girl. As the man who had left to search returned to the apartment, he saw the girl leaving it.

The man then went to his room and found $3,000 in cash missing, charges state. There was no evidence the apartment was broken into.

The girl and 33-year-old man were found later in Colorado.
