Missing girl found in teacher's closet

A 17-year-old missing teenager was found hiding in the closet of a male teacher's home near Chicago, according to Fox News. The girl was found after the teacher told police he did not know where she was.

Eric Wood, 24, teaches at a middle school in Waukegan, Ill. He was charged with the obstruction of justice, for lying to police about the girl's whereabouts.

The girl's family reported her missing on Nov. 8. According to Chicago Breaking News,the girl was found the following day in the teacher's home.

Wood and the girl met in July at a Milwaukee car show. The two had been in contact since then. However, the girl's family said the two are nothing more than friends.

Wood is expected to appear in Lake County Circuit Court on Dec. 9.
