Child missing from Florida found in Macon

Officials searching for missing 11-year-old girl

State law enforcement has issued a Missing Child Alert for an 11-year-old Orlando girl. Authorities are still looking into the incident, including if Johnson was taken against her will and if Byrns abused the girl.

The TV station spoke with the girl's mother earlier on Sunday and she said her daughter had been in communication with a person online who lives in IL.

By late Sunday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents using electronic investigative techniques tracked the 11-year-old to Macon where police found her with a 24-year-old man at a Holiday Inn.

Investigators say the pair headed north, and they tracked Johnson's phone to the Holiday Inn Express on Harrison Road.

Deputies began to check the area in an attempt to locate Johnson and Byrns.

According to the IDF, the strikes targeted a Hamas terror tunnel that reached into Israeli territory and two military compounds. Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, in a statement said they had fired at the Israeli jets overhead.

Sheriff Jerry Demings said Johnson appeared to have met Byrns in a video game chat room and that he posed as a 13-14 year old. "He may be charged with additional charges".

"Parents just really need to pay attention to what their kids are doing", said Clausen.

"This is someone that she's been communicating with online under the guise of being a female and basically has just pulled her into a trap, so to speak", her father said.

Neighbors say Byrns lives there with his mom and dad.
