Two teenage girls who have been missing from their foster home for nearly a year have been found alive less than 15 miles from where they were last seen. A family friend has been accused of kidnapping Ky-Lea, 14, and Shaeleen, 16, Fortner.
The Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin reports that authorities are alleging that Wellmann held the girls against their will and refused to let them return to the foster home. The complaint against Wellmann, according to the Press & Sun Bulletin, reads, "During the course of the next 11 months, Hellman, who is not related to either child, conducted numerous acts to prevent law enforcement from returning the two children to their foster parents."
Here are the photos of Wellmann that go somewhere to telling the story of this crazy kidnap story:
