Law enforcement rescued a missing 13-year-old girl from a locked shed in Lexington, North Carolina, after federal authorities provided a tip about the missing minor.
Davidson County Sheriff Richie Simmons said his office received a tip from an FBI Violent Crimes Task Force about a minor who had been abducted from Dallas. Officials were able to locate the missing girl in an externally-locked shed behind a home in Lexington, North Carolina.
Simmons said that Jorge Camacho, 34, used a social media messenger to lure her from her home to his car.
"The content of the chat was consistent with grooming and enticement, and he enticed her to actually leave the home where he picked her up in the area," Simmons said.
The timeline of the abduction is still unclear, as the investigation is ongoing; however, authorities said that they were able to use "camera activity" to determine the vehicle associated with the abduction and the suspect's identity within 10 minutes of getting the tip.
