FBI: US Girls may Have Tried to join ’ISIL’
Local Editor

Three teenage girls from suburban Denver may have been trying to join "ISIL" militants in Syria after stealing their parents' money and flying to Germany, authorities said Tuesday.

The girls - two sisters, ages 17 and 15, and their 16-year-old friend - were reported missing after they skipped school Friday, but the families had no indication of where they might have gone, said Glenn Thompson, bureau chief of the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department.
They were stopped at the Frankfurt, Germany, airport over the weekend by FBI agents and returned to Colorado where they were reunited with their families, FBI spokeswoman Suzie Payne said.

The missing person's report contains details of the girls' movements.

They said they stayed in the Frankfurt airport for an entire day before being detained, questioned and returned to Denver, where they were further questioned by the FBI and sent home.

They told authorities they had gone to Germany for "family" but wouldn't elaborate.

Suspicion arose when the sisters' father realized his daughters were gone, along with $2,000 and their passports.
The 16-year-old girl's father became concerned when he got a call from her high school saying she hadn't reported to class, according to the police reports.
The families reported no prior problems with the girls.

Deputies closed the missing person's case Monday after they learned the girls had been returned.
The announcement comes one month after 19-year-old Shannon Conley of Arvada, Colorado, pleaded guilty to charges that she conspired to help militants in Syria.
The US Attorney's Office in Denver declined to comment on the latest cases. It's unclear whether the girls will face charges.

Crimes committed by juveniles are treated as acts of "delinquency" in the federal system and are not handled the same way as crimes committed by adults.
Authorities have not said how they think the girls became interested in helping "ISIL" militants. In Conley's case, she told agents she wanted to marry a suitor she met online who said he was a Tunisian man fighting with "ISIL" in Syria.

Conley said she wanted to use her American military training with the US Army Explorers to fight a holy war overseas, authorities said. If she could not fight with the extremists, she told agents, she would use her training as a nurse's aide.

Agents, who had been overtly trying to stop Conley, arrested her in April as she boarded a flight she hoped would ultimately get her to Syria. She could face up to five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced in January.
