Online Williamson County records show VanHouten was arrested by Georgetown Police and booked into the jail Tuesday. He has two charges of harboring a runaway child.

The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found the girls “out of town.” They had been missing since late June out of McGregor, Texas, which is about 65 miles north of Georgetown.
