He will appear again at Sheffield Crown Court on September 19
Monday 01 July 2013
A 35-year-old man accused of abducting a 14-year-old girl has been remanded in custody.
The teenager disappeared from her home near Doncaster last month. She was found four days later by police in central London, where John Bush was arrested.
Bush appeared before a judge at Sheffield Crown Court today charged with child abduction. He is also charged with making off without payment from a hotel in Leicestershire.
Bush, of Moss Road, Askern, Doncaster, was arrested following a nationwide search for the girl.
He was remanded in custody and told by Judge Peter Kelson that he will appear again at Sheffield Crown Court on September 19 for a plea and case management hearing.
A provisional trial date was fixed for November 25. There was no application for bail.
Bush stood in the dock flanked by a security officer for the 10-minute hearing. Wearing a navy blue T-shirt and with a pair of glasses on top of his head, he spoke only to confirm his name.
Bush is charged with one count under the Child Abduction Act 1984.
He is also charged with making off without paying for two hotel rooms in Melton Mowbray, avoiding payment of £60.
