Two occupants of the home where Norvell was found — Lucinda J. Bryant, 47, and her husband, Robert E. Bryant Sr., 47, — were arrested last week and are charged with falsification, obstruction of justice, and interference with custody. They are scheduled to be in Middletown Municipal Court this afternoon.
Norvell was not held against her will and was found unharmed, according to Trenton police.
The Edgewood High School student told police she was disappointed she was found, said Trenton Police Chief Arthur Scott.
He said she turns 18 in several months, and believes she wanted to remain hidden until she was a legal adult.
Police said unruly juvenile charges will be filed against Norvell, who is in the custody of Butler County Children Services. She is scheduled to be in juvenile court on Friday.
