Missing Owsley Co. teenager found; man charged in the case

BOONEVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - State police said Wednesday night they have found a 16-year-old Owsley County girl, who had been missing since January 25.

Police say Darci Hollan is now on her way back to Owsley County.

Police say they've arrested 48-year-old Robert Duke, of Bracken County, and charged him with unlawful transaction with a minor. Police say more charges are possible against Duke.

Duke is being taken to the Three Forks Regional Jail in Lee County.

Hollan's mother says she found her bedroom window open and the window screen cut on the morning she disappeared.

"She was real private, she wouldn't tell nobody nothing, just like every other teenager I guess," Carla Hollan said.

Police went through Darci's computer but weren't able to find any helpful information. They say all of her social media websites had been erased.
