  • Suburban man arrested after kidnapping 11-year-old, police say

The child was found on Sunday after police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were able to track her down and find her in at a Holiday Inn in Georgia with 24-year-old John Peter Byrns, from Illinois, WESH 2 reports. "She's lucky that the circumstances are not any worse than what they are", Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said, according to Fox News.

Officials with the Bibb County Sheriff's Office said John Peter Byrns, of Hoffman Estates, Illinois, was taken into custody. They had also talked on the phone.

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

"He struck up a dialogue, a communication with this child simply by faking that he was another 13 or 14-year-old girl", said Demings.

Even more alarming is the Orange County Sheriff says there may be other victims.

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




The FBI, Orange County Sheriff and Bibb County Sheriff in Georgia worked on the case.

"It could be a 12-year-old boy, or it could be a 30-year-old man", 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. Police even urged parents to play the games their children play, so they know how to operate them and can check on what their children are up to.

The 11-year-old, Alice Amelia Johnson, was found in Georgia after vanishing from her Orlando home on Saturday night.

Demings said Byrns is not a registered sex offender.
