According to police, the investigation is complex because the three men are not U.S. citizens and are known to have fake ID cards and documentation, WTOL-TV reports.
Investigators are asking the public to identify the suspects from their pictures because they are not sure the names they have are the suspects’ legal names.
The victims, 13- and 14-year-old sisters, said they escaped from their captors at the motel, where the accused suspects were also staying, WTOL-TV reports. The victims' mother and stepfather transported them to a nearby hospital when police were notified.
Police executed a search warrant at the motel, identifying four suspects in the case.
The fourth suspect, identified as Simon Juan Thomas, 24, of Guatemala, was located and arrested on charges of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, police said. Thomas has been booked into the Wood County, Ohio Justice Center, records show.
