Man charged with kidnapping teenager
A 34-year-old California man has been charged with kidnapping a Michigan teenager he met online.
The 13-year-old Hamilton, Mich., girl was reported missing last month.
Authorities say they found her with Joseph Arpin at a convenience store in Crestwood, Mo.
Arpin was arraigned on a kidnapping charge in Allegan District Court on Thursday.
A message seeking comment was left Friday with lawyer Fred Hunter, who represents the San Jacinto resident.
Arpin is being held on bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
The girl's mother has said her daughter left their home late at night, climbing out a bedroom window to take off with Arpin.
Hamilton is near Lake Michigan, about 25 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.

Agency wants Corps to restore L.A. habitat
A state board has ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to mitigate damage caused to 49 acres of wildlife habitat at two sites along the Los Angeles River.
The Los Angeles Times says the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board gave the Corps 60 days to submit a plan for restoring the areas.
The board's executive officer said in a letter that the agency will file a federal lawsuit if the Corps refuses to comply.
An Army Corps spokesman says the letter is under review.
The order comes after the Corps failed to obtain authorization to dredge and fill two sites along the Los Angeles River in 2012 and 2011.
