Two men accused of taking part in the sex trafficking and rape of an Indiana teenager in Clermont County have made guilty pleas.

The 14-year-old girl was reported missing in May and was found a few days later in a Union Township apartment.

According to police, a man from Kansas met her on an app and then drove her to Clermont County.

Following a trail of digital clues and tips, federal agents said they found her in the apartment complex with two men from Cincinnati.

Authorities said Eric Zyn Ho, 25, and Bryan Mathew Otero, 27, conspired to harbor the teen then had her engage in a commercial sex act.

Both men were charged and arrested on May 4 and remain in custody.

Authorities announced Monday that both have pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to sex trafficking a child.

Ho also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to produce child pornography.
