A Utah college student who went missing after leaving her dorm room a week ago to meet a man from an online fetish chatroom, was rescued by the police from the home of her alleged kidnapper, where she was found naked and covered in coal in the basement.
Law enforcement officials arrested 39-year-old Brent Brown in connection with the disappearance of Madelyn Allen, a 19-year-old Snow College student from Ephraim. He now faces charges of obstruction of justice, aggravated kidnaping, rape and object rape.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Brown took away Allen's wallet and phone, and tied her up while he was at work, later claiming that it was part of kidnapping role-play.
During a press conference on Saturday night, Allen's overjoyed parents recounted how they fell to their knees after getting a call from the police, telling them their daughter has been found alive.
Allen met Brown in a group chat on the messaging app KIK and agreed to have him pick her up in Ephraim on December 13, the affidavit stated.
Snow College security video showed Allen leaving her dormitory after 9.20pm last Monday.
