A man was arrested in Laurel County Monday after Kentucky State Police was notified by Michigan authorities that a missing female juvenile was possibly in his tractor-trailer.
Trooper Jeremy Elliotte found the tractor-trailer traveling on Interstate 75 southbound just past London Monday night and pulled the driver to the side of the road, according to a release from state police.
The girl was found inside the truck unharmed, state police said. She had been entered into the National Crime Information Center through Michigan as a missing person, according to state police.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, Robert Phillips, 57, of Michigan, was charged with unlawful transaction with a minor and possession of marijuana charges. He has been placed in the Laurel County Detention Center.
