PM: Oklahoma City authorities have charged eight suspects with various counts in connection with a 15-year old girl who went missing from a Mavericks game in April. The girl has since been found.
Thalia Gibson has been charged with offering to engage in prostitution.

And a woman by the name of Melissa Wheeler has a robbery warrant.
At a Mavericks game in the beginning of April, a 15-year-old girl left her father to use the restroom and never returned to her seat. Concerned, her father alerted authorities at the stadium in Dallas, Texas. By the time the game ended, the girl still had not been found.
The father was instructed to return home. After issuing pleas and concerned notices to the Dallas Police Department, the department refused to open an investigation into the matter. For eleven days, the girl’s family was left in the dark. more
