Man posed as teen, drove from IL to abduct FL girl

"What we know is that he drove from IL to Orlando, picked up the child here in Orlando just down the street from her residence and then was making his way back to IL", said Orange County investigator Sgt. Brandon Ragan.

Alice Amelia Johnson was reported missing at about 9 a.m. Sunday from a subdivision near University Boulevard and North Econlockhatchee Trail, deputies said. "So that's how the first initial contact we believe was made", an official said in a news conference on Monday.

Johnson's phone was being tracked by the Orange County Sheriff's Office as she was traveling north with 24-year-old John Byrns of IL. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and deputies recovered the girl and took Byrns into custody.

The Orange County, Florida sheriff calls this a disturbing case.

Officials found the 11-year-old and Byrns at a Holiday Inn Express in Macon, Ga., after tracking the girl's phone.

Groves vs Eubank Jr
Eubank (26-2, 20 KOs) had spoken about ending Groves' career and emulating his father's success by winning his first world title. The victor goes forth to the World Boxing Super Series final and will face either fellow Brit Callum Smith or Jurgen Brahmer .

"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. "I'm calling him a child sexual predator because that's what his behavior indicated", said Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.

Byrns is now in custody charged with kidnapping. He convinced Johnson to leave her home to meet him. Agents are keeping Johnson in safe place until she is reunited with her family.

Demings says the two met online through a video game.

Neighbors say Byrns lives there with his mom and dad. Byrns is expected to face charges.
