Norvell was found Tuesday unharmed and hiding in the closet of a Middletown home.
Trenton Police Chief Arthur Scott said as many as three children were living with Nina Norvell Berry, the legal guardian and aunt to Norvell.
Scott described Berry as “not the best housekeeper.”
DEVELOPING: More charges likely after Trenton teen found safe
Calls to Bill Morrison, director of Butler County Children Services, seeking comment were not returned Wednesday or Thursday.
Lucinda and Robert Bryant – the occupants of the Middletown home where Norvell was found – have been charged with falsification, obstruction of justice, and interference with custody, according to the Trenton police chief.
Scott said the teen was not held against her will and was not kidnapped, but the couple was “hiding information” from police.
