Police: Glassport man arrested after missing teen from Kentucky found in his apartment A Glassport man is facing several charges after police said a missing teenager from Kentucky was found in his apartment. Police had been investigating the disappearance of the 16-year-old girl from her home in Paducah. At one point, police went to look for the girl at an apartment in a building on Monongahela Avenue in Glassport. An investigator searched the space where Rory Shelton, 56, lives but did not locate the teen. The building manager later spoke with police and sent then a video that police said shows the girl with Shelton on May 3. Police went back to the apartment on May 7 and located the girl inside. She was naked at the time.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Magoffin County Sheriff's Department said Howard had been found and was in "remarkably good condition."

No further details about how he was found have been released.
