Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – A cab driver pleaded not guilty to charges for his alleged role in causing a massive search for a 13-year-old girl.

Casey McPeak pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges.

He is accused of picking up 13-year-old Jate’a Frank in Mount Vernon and dropping her off at a camp near Wartburg in June. Authorities then started a massive search for Frank, who was found the next day.

Prosecutors said he should not have driven the girl so far from home without an adult’s permission.
