— FBI agents in Colorado are questioning a convicted sex offender before he is returned to North Carolina.

Phillip Denkler was arrested in Sterling, Colo. He was wanted on kidnapping charges for leaving the state with 12-year-old Jodie Collie last week.

Collie was found safe in Iowa Tuesday and is now back home in Rocky Mount.

Investigators are trying to figure out how Collie met Denkler.

There is no word yet on when he will be in court in North Carolina.
