Authorities in Utah are reporting that they have located a college student who was reported missing earlier this month.

19-year-old Madelyn Allen was reported missing on December 13th after she failed to return home from a date with a man she’d met online.

During their investigation, authorities were able to track Allen’s phone to a home in Loa belonging to 39-year-old Brent Brown.

When authorities spoke to Brown, he however told them that he did not know Allen and that he was the only one in the home.

Investigators continued to watch the home and saw a person in the home’s basement that looked similar to Allen.

Officials then got permission to enter the home where they found Allen with no clothes and covered in coal dust.

In a interview, Allen told authorities that she met Brown in a bondage chat group and decided to go on a date with him.

She also told them that when Brown found out that police were looking for her, he threw away her phone.

Brown has since been arrested and is facing charges including kidnapping, rape, object rape, and obstruction of justice.
