Man questioned in search for missing teen


Associated Press

— WEATHERFORD (AP) — Authorities say a man wanted for questioning in the disappearance of a 16-year-old Oklahoma girl has been found — but he provided no clues as to the girl's location.

The search continued Sunday for Jaray Mickell Wilson of Weatherford — who disappeared Oct. 15 and who investigators say may have been sold to a human trafficking ring.

Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said Gilberto Paz, 37, was found Saturday and questioned about the girl's disappearance but provided no information as to Wilson's whereabouts. Peoples said Paz was arrested on an unrelated weapons charge and he didn't know whether Paz has an attorney.

Authorities say they suspect Wilson is being held against her will or was sold into human trafficking in Oklahoma City, about 70 miles east of Weatherford.
