    Missing girl found safe; man charged with kidnapping
    A 13-year-old girl missing for days was found bound and gagged but alive in a basement Sunday, and authorities hoped a man charged with kidnapping her might lead them to her mother, brother and another woman who disappeared with her.

    Barber did not say what led investigators to Hoffman's home, a two-story house with tan siding and a large television antenna on the roof that is about 10 miles from the home of Sarah's family.

    "You need to be optimistic because there's no evidence. We haven't recovered a body," Knox County Sheriff David B. Barber said. "But we need to be realistic. There's a possibility that these folks are dead."

    Ohio Sheriff: "Significant Evidence"

    Knox County Sheriff David Barber says investigators "have recovered significant evidence" in the search for clues in the disappearance of Tina Herrman, her friend Stephanie Sprang and Tina's 11 year-old son.
    That evidence apparently includes a tarp and trash bags found closed with duct tape in Foundation Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio, across the street from the home of prime suspect Matthew Hoffman who police say had Herrman's 13 year-old daughter bound and gagged in his basement. Police also revealed Hoffman had a receipt from the nearby Wal-Mart for a tarp and trash bags, along with a t-shirt and deli sandwich.
    The Sheriff is encouraging anyone who sees anything unusual, including trash bags, to call authorities and not touch the possible evidence. He's also asking people to call who may have seen any of the three vehicles involved in the missing persons case: Herrman's F-150 Ford Pickup, Sprang's silver Jeep Cherokee or Hoffman's Toyota Yaris compact.
