A man is jailed in Cortez, Colorado for his involvement in a Topeka missing teen case.

Montezuma, Colorado sheriff Steve Nowlin told KSNT News Friday morning that Michael Fitzgerald, of Topeka, was arrested by Cortez, Colo. police around midnight on a main street in Cortez.  He was jailed for harboring a juvenile.

Fitzgerald is the man who police believe left Topeka with 14-year old Chloe Hunnicut earlier this week in southwest Topeka.  Hunnicut is safe and is now in police protective custody until she can be safely reunited with her family here in Topeka.
