    "runaways can be pretty "invisible" when they don't want to be found." PracticalMagick

    And there's that noble "snitches get stitches" culture we keep paying to propagate.

  • Momma2three Jan 10, 9:05 a.m.

    Just plain common sense- I am not sure what your comment about President Obama/ VP Bden has to do with this story. Do you not have confidence in our PRESIDENT to care wnough about humanity, that if there WAS something they could do to prevent things like this from happening, they would. Do you have a solution to PREVENT crimes?

  • PracticalMagick Jan 10, 8:53 a.m.

    Not sure what to think about the 14 y/o, but if the 15 y/o is a runaway, her parents or guardians probably did call the authorities, but runaways can be pretty "invisible" when they don't want to be found.

    robbyh - Something tells me they were not held against their will, these young girls won't to act like adults until the law gets involved. Still he should have known better.

    They sound like potential runaways that got caught up in sex trade prostitution. These young women often live in bad living environments and end up putting their trust in the wrong people. It's not necessarily kids wanting to be grown, but having nowhere to turn to and unable to find stability in their lives.

    It doesn't sound like either of the girls were there "against their will". At 14 and 15, they obviously made a conscious decision that they wanted to be there. It's an appartment, not a dungeun and the guy obviously had to sleep sometime. That doesn't make it any less illegal for him to take advantage of them but whatever they both ran away from, probably isn't much better.

  • Terkel Jan 9, 7:58 p.m.

    Easy: the guardian was getting something out of it too.

  • Barfly Jan 9, 7:57 p.m.

    It's sad when a parent(s) cares so little for the children they bring into this world. The cyle continues with every generation becoming more violent and perverted.

  • djofraleigh Jan 9, 7:17 p.m.

    I'd like to know "the rest of the story..." regarding the parents of the girls. Thank goodness for the responsible foster parent taking action which eventually led the LEOs to the 15 yo girl in the house.

  • Just Plain Common Sense Jan 9, 7:10 p.m.

    Where is Obama and Biden? Couldnt this have been their daughter? WHY don't theynlook to solve these types crimes and PREVENT them? WHy? Because they really do not care...sad to say.

  • Just Plain Common Sense Jan 9, 7:08 p.m.

    If my child or someone I was responsible for went missing "at all" I would be petrified and call the police immediately. And, I would not stop looking till I found them or died trying.

  • Just Plain Common Sense Jan 9, 7:06 p.m.

    Monster.

  • ljwhitmire Jan 9, 6:28 p.m.

    Like most have said, how could two kids be missing for weeks and go unreported. I hope WRAL follows up on this story with that information. I think most responsible parents/guardians would have filed a missing persons report after hours, much less days or weeks.

    Sounds like they might need to haul them in as well and ask "What the heck?"

  • bdu4dals2 Jan 9, 5:54 p.m.

    Regardless....at least one person needs to go away for a LONG time.

  • COLT45 Jan 9, 5:44 p.m.

    Another fine example of mankind. This "Person" should be removed from the human race.

  • Conservative Jan 9, 5:17 p.m.

    If the 14 year old was missing several weeks why did it take so long for the guardian to report it? And who is responcible for the 15 year old the police found when they went to his home?
    piene2HasNoClue

    I am NOT responding to your comment but I am writing to say I love your GOLO alias - most probably "piene2" will come back disguised with a new alias - however - the tone of the comments will expose that person! Once can take cover under a different alias only for so long before one reveals oneself, figuratively speaking.

  • Dynol Yn Cael Ei Jan 9, 5:07 p.m.

    hollylama - "Seems as if the "guardian" may be culpable."

    Interesting theory, perhaps!

  • Dynol Yn Cael Ei Jan 9, 5:05 p.m.

    Hi Blah - "Lidska Bytost - you can't hold someone against their will? What???"

    What I mean was, it's illegal, not that it can't happen.

    ;o)

  • RM24 Jan 9, 4:54 p.m.

    HOW do all these kids not go home for weeks yet don't get reported missing? ALL involved should be closely investigated!!!

  • blahblahblah Jan 9, 4:43 p.m.

    Lidska Bytost - you can't hold someone against their will? What???

  • Dynol Yn Cael Ei Jan 9, 4:06 p.m.

    jrfergerson - "Underage sex was it consentual or did he commit rape?"

    Sex with an underaged person IS rape, statutory rape at the very least. According to the law, an underaged person is not of an age to LEGALLY give consent, so even if these girls did, he's the adult and should have known their consent wasn't LEGAL.

    Plus, because he held the 14-year old "against her will", a kidnapping charge will soon be filed.

    You can't hold someone against their will - child or adult.

  • hollylama Jan 9, 4:01 p.m.

    Seems as if the "guardian" may be culpable.

  • Dynol Yn Cael Ei Jan 9, 4:01 p.m.

    "A 14-year-old girl and her guardian told police last weekend that a man held her against her will for several weeks at a Fayetteville home and had sex with her."

    And the guardian never filed a missing person's report on the girl??

    Also, where are the parents/guardians of the 15-year old??

    Praying for the girls, but I have a lot of questions here.

    Thank God he's in jail, with a VERY sizable and totally appropriate bond.

  • piene2HasNoClue Jan 9, 3:52 p.m.

    If the 14 year old was missing several weeks why did it take so long for the guardian to report it? And who is responcible for the 15 year old the police found when they went to his home?

  • JAT Jan 9, 3:51 p.m.

    wait - where the "guardians" think the kid they were supposed to be "guarding" was for several weeks? And where are the parents of the "older girl" of 15 who's been there since May? What in the world is wrong with people???

  • jrfergerson Jan 9, 3:46 p.m.

    A 14-year-old girl and her guardian told police last weekend that a man held her against her will for several weeks at a Fayetteville home - WHY HAD THE GUARDIAN NOT FILLED A MISSING PERSONS REPORT ON THE 14 YOG. Was she there on her own free will. AND the 15 yog - where are her parents and how did she end up there? Seems to me this man had it made laying around with the two of them. Underage sex was it consentual or did he commit rape? Lots not told here.

  • Wolfpack7070 Jan 9, 3:26 p.m.

    I'm sure our fine justice system will have him out in no time and he will continue the same behavior......

  • Momma2three Jan 9, 3:20 p.m.

    Did anyone file a missing person's report for eith one of these girls? Amber alert, or anything? Sounds sketchy to me.

  • ashleyspivey1986 Jan 9, 3:11 p.m.

    this is horrible but where was the guardian when the girl was being raped for several weeks...did the guardian call the cops when the girl was missing for weeks??

  • Whosays Jan 9, 3:11 p.m.

    Sicko

  • NotUrTypicalAmerican Jan 9, 3:07 p.m.

    53 counts?!? Holy moley! Under the jail! Forever!

  • Momma2three Jan 9, 3:03 p.m.

    Sick!!!
