KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) - Federal, state and county law enforcement officials have returned to a southeast Iowa boarding school for troubled teens following abuse allegations.

The Keokuk Daily Gate (https://bit.ly/1TXo2Z3 ) reports officials with the FBI and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation returned to Midwest Academy on Thursday to execute a search warrant for records following an initial search of the academy on Jan. 28 and 29.

An FBI officer said a U-Haul truck parked outside the building would be filled with records from the facility.

In January, dozens of state and local officers served a search warrant over two days at the academy in response to a complaint alleging a resident was sexually assaulted by a staff member. Another staff member claims she was fired for reporting a sexual assault to authorities.
