(St. Cloud-AP) -- Cindy Bruno is home. The eleven-year-old St. Cloud girl was recovered in Utah with a 21-year-old man after the two disappeared earlier this week.

Cindy had been staying at a temporary shelter in Salt Lake City. An F-B-I agent flew with her back to Minnesota. Utah authorities say it was the girl's first airplane ride.

Authorities in Stearns County have filed a felony charge against Antonio Andrade. He is accused of deprivation of parental rights.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of only two years in prison and a four thousand dollar fine. Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall says the charge could be upgraded later, depending on what investigators learn from Andrade or the girl.

Although the F-B-I filed a criminal complaint charging Andrade with kidnapping, he hasn't been indicted yet on the kidnapping charge because authorities aren't sure if Cindy went with Andrade willingly.
