EFFINGHAM CO., Ill.---A 13-year-old girl missing from rural Effingham County has been located and the man alleged to have abducted her is in custody...but the strange story is getting stranger as more information comes in.

Rebecca Neu, the girl in question, went missing yesterday morning, Saturday, January 31, 2015, at 8:45 a.m., leaving a note behind. While it's unclear who exactly wrote the note, it is said to have referenced that she left the area with Steven Larson, 60, also of rural Effingham County. The note indicated that the two were leaving for Chicago together. However, investigating authorities state there was something in the note that indicated that Neu was in some sort of danger; they have not specified what this was.

Larson owns at least one karate studio in the Effingham County area. Whether or not Neu was one of his students has gone unstated in the ensuing investigation.

An AMBER Alert went out early this morning; however, Illinois State Police said shortly thereafter that the two had been located.

We've learned that Larson is in custody; whether he's charged with anything, or what that might be, remains unknown at this time. Where Neu is also remains unverified; however, unofficial sources have advised that she's returning to the Effingham County area.

When we learn more, we'll post. Keep checking back often, as this has a lot of twists and variables.
