Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol along with special agents and officers with the FBI Oklahoma City Field Office found Aubrey and arrested 23-year-old Jacob Gardea of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Investigators tracked a kidnapped girl across multiple states and found her safe in Oklahoma, 900 miles from her North Carolina home.

A 13-year-old girl who disappeared Monday from a small town east of Charlotte has been found 900 miles away, in Checotah, Oklahoma, reports the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities have notified her family and are working to return her to her western North Carolina home.

Aubrey went missing Sunday after she was last seen in Mooresboro, North Carolina, west of Charlotte.

"Law enforcement is grateful to a keen eyewitness who helped begin our investigative process with a strong lead that brought us to this joyful outcome", said an Federal Bureau of Investigation release. Gardea is facing charges in North Carolina for abduction of a child while additional charges could be pending.

Next US moon landing will be by private companies, not NASA
Mr Bridenstine said NASA would buy the service and let private industry work out the details on getting there. The exact moon missions and payloads that the private companies will be assisting with isn't yet clear.

An eyewitness reported seeing Aubrey get into a auto with an unidentified person in Mooreseboro on Monday.

Aubrey is a 13-year-old, white female with hazel eyes and brown hair.

From there, officials were able to pinpoint the vehicle's location.

The FBI on Wednesday identified a white Subaru SUV as a vehicle of interest in the case.

The FBI is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the girl's disappearance.
