The girls were found in the custody of their father, 35-year-old Matthew Chapman. He is now in custody and faces charges of parental kidnapping.
Authorities found Chapman along with 7 year old Abby, and 3 year old Isabella at approximately 5 this evening in Wyoming. The girls are now in protective custody and are expected to return to Missouri late next week. Barry County authorities say Chapman picked up the girls July 10th from their mother's house in Exeter, saying he was taking them to Silver Dollar City. Officials say Chapman sold his vehicle two days later, and friends and family hadn't seen or heard from him since.
