TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Two people have been arrested in the weekend kidnapping of an 8-year-old Topeka girl.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1usGoSo ) reports that the girl was missing for nearly six hours when she was found Saturday afternoon more than two miles away from her home. Maj. Jerry Stanley says the preliminary investigation showed she had been assaulted.

A man and woman were arrested Saturday night on charges that included aggravated kidnapping, aggravated child endangerment and aggravated burglary.

About 50 people had participated in the search for the missing girl. Some took 4-wheelers to nearby woods, while others printed off dozens of flyers.
