Missing child alert issued for 11-year old girl

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.

Bibb County sheriff's deputies were working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down 11-year-old Alice Amelia Johnson of Orlando.

Police caught up with Byrns at a Holiday Inn Express in Macon, Ga., arrested him and safely recovered the girl, according to authorities in Georgia and Florida. He credited "extraordinary police work" for "the best possible outcome any of us could have hoped for". "I'm calling him a child sexual predator because that's what his behavior indicated", said Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.

The girl was found with an adult man Sunday in Georgia, officials told sister station WESH 2 News.

Byrns is being held at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center and is expected to be charged.

Bibb County juvenile crimes investigator Sgt. Tania Clausen says they've seen cases like this before.

They certainly have an all-around modern design, though their Super AMOLED screens (both with 1080 x 2220 pixels) are not curved. In terms of design, both the phones would look nearly identical to their predecessors, though there will be a few minor changes.

She encourages parents to check their children's phones, iPads, Facebook accounts, Instagram accounts, and really any device or social media outlet they could be using for communication.

Demings said the child did not appear to have been physically harmed.

Demings says Johnson was persuaded to leave her home in Orlando and meet with Byrns.

"Her mother had given us information in reference to a particular individual she was chatting with, and that's kind of what drew us in that direction", said Sgt. Brandon Ragan with the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Neighbors say Byrns lives there with his mom and dad.
