LEXINGTON, Missouri (WOWT) -- Authorities in Lexington, Missouri have arrested a 52-year-old man in connection with the alleged kidnapping of a 13-year-old Omaha, Nebraska girl. The suspect is identified as Terry Turner.
On Thursday afternoon, the Lafayette County Sheriff's Office in Missouri received information about the kidnapping. The young teen had reportedly been in the company of Terry Alan Turner of Arcadia, Florida, possibly traveling back to Florida.
The victim was picked up from Morton Middle School in Omaha on Thursday morning after she had left the bus outside of school around 7:30 a.m. Turner and the girl had apparently been communicating via an online dating website for several weeks.
The parents of the child were alerted to the abduction when school officials called to ask why the girl was not in school.
