The missing Bonney Lake girl has been found safe, police reported Sunday.
Lileana "Lily" Christopherson, 15, was found in Puyallup and reunited with her family, Bonney Lake police announced on Twitter.
She was at a bus stop in the 1700 block of South Meridian when a passerby spotted her and notified police, Puyallup police spokesman Ryan Portmann said. She was then turned over to Bonney Lake police.
No additional arrests were made at that time, Portmann said.
Christopherson went missing the morning of May 9, when she took a bus up to the Federal Way Transit Center.
There she met up with Christopher Fitzpatrick, a 39-year-old Federal Way sex offender, who was arrested May 27 in Lakewood in connection to Christopherson's disappearance. Maria Ann Counts, 29, of Tenino, was arrested May 24 at a Tumwater hotel.
The pair were both arraigned Tuesday in Pierce County Superior Court on charges of first-degree kidnapping, promoting commercial sex abuse of a minor, providing drugs to a minor, possession of child pornography and two counts of third-degree child rape. Fitzpatrick's bail was set at $2 million; Counts' bail was set at $500,000.
Bonney Lake police arrested a third man late Wednesday on suspicion of third-degree child rape. The 34-year-old Tacoma resident is expected to be arraigned Monday in Pierce County Superior Court on the charges, prosecutors said Thursday, and he is being held without bail in Pierce County Jail.
The Tacoma man also faces two counts of forgery in Pierce County on an unrelated case.
Christopherson had last been seen by her family about 1 a.m. May 9. When her mother went to check on her at 8 a.m., she was gone, according to court records. Her email and social media passwords were changed.
An 18-year-old man who hung out with Christopherson that day told police they went to the transit center, then met up with Fitzpatrick and Counts. They did a synthetic hallucinogen together in an RV, then the 18-year-old was asked to leave, documents state.
Police were able to determine that the three went to a Tacoma home, but they missed them by a day or two, documents state. They then searched the Tumwater hotel, where Counts was arrested.
Documents on Counts' phone showed that she and Fitzpatrick were using Christopherson as a prostitute, records state, and photos of her were on the phone.
Fitzpatrick was arrested later at a Lakewood home on a warrant for failing to register as a sex offender.
His criminal history includes two prior convictions for failing to register as a sex offender, and a third warrant for the same charge was issued in 2016. He was initially convicted in 2003 of third-degree assault and felony harassment for repeatedly raping his then-wife. When he was arrested at a Fife motel, he was having sex with a 16-year-old girl tied to the bedposts, charging documents stated.
