    Alexandra “Alex” Papineau, 15, who the Vermont State Police said had been missing from Chittenden since Tuesday, was found safe in Rutland on Wednesday around 4:30 p.m., according to a press release.

    In the early morning hours of Tuesday, according to police, Papineau, of Chittenden, ran away from her home to the Rutland area, leading the Vermont State Police to begin an investigation of Papineau as a “missing person.”

    With the help of the Rutland City Police, Papineau was found, unharmed, and hiding in the basement of a home on Forrest Street on Wednesday.

    According to a police, Cory J. Munger, 17, of Rutland had been harboring Papineau. Throughout the investigation, Munger made false and misleading statements to investigators about what he knew of Papineau’s whereabouts.

    Munger was arrested and taken to the Rutland barracks of the Vermont State Police where he was cited for second-degree unlawful restraint and providing false information to police.

    Munger is expected to be arraigned on Jan. 14 in Rutland criminal court.
