At the start of this month, the Virginia State Police issued an endangered missing child alert for Cayla Sue Austin, who had allegedly left her home in Luray on January 5. On Thursday morning, police executed a search warrant at an apartment on Massanutten Ave. Austin was alive and in the closet willingly, and police say she may have had a romantic relationship with Shifflett. Police were able to track her down using social media and through an interview with Mary Stanley, a Luray resident.
Stanley ran into Austin at the apartment complex on January 5. According to Stanley, Austin said she had been kicked out of her home but insisted she go with an older man. Shifflett's bedroom door was locked and dead-bolted, police say, to avoid his mother, who he lives with, finding the girl in his room.
Shifflett has now been charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, one count of obstruction of justice and two counts of violating a protective order: Cook says the case is still under investigation.
