A 15-year-old Florida girl who had been missing for almost a year has been reunited with her mother.
The girl was reported missing by her mother December 26, 2018 after she disappeared from her Sunrise, Florida home. The teen was last seen in February of this year when she was spotted shopping at a convenience store. The store's clerk, who happened to be a family friend, saw her get into a black Dodge Challenger with two unknown men.
When the police obtained the surveillance footage they could clearly see the suspects but not their license plates.
The girl's mother went to authorities in agony after videos of her daughter, engaged in sex acts, started appearing on the internet. Sunrise police say that least 58 videos were found on sites like PornHub, ModelHub, Periscope and SnapChat. In several of those videos they say she can be seen with a bald-headed man, one of the same men she had been spotted with in February.
According to the Sun Sentinel "Police eventually linked the Dodge to a 30-year-old Davie man named Christopher Johnson and conducted surveillance at his apartment in the 8100 block of Southwest 24th Court.
On Tuesday, when Johnson and the girl left the apartment and drove away in a black Dodge Challenger, police pulled them over.
The girl later told detectives many of the videos of her having sex with Johnson had been recorded at his apartment, according to the report.
Because of her age and the nature of the crime, the South Florida Sun Sentinel is not identifying the girl."
The unidentified girl told authorities that at one point she became pregnant and that Johnson took her to have an abortion. Johnson insists that he never had sex with the girl even though he is clearly seen on the videos engaging in the acts with the minor.
Johnson is being charged with lewd or lascivious battery on a victim between 12 and 16, which is a felony, and his bond has been set at $75,000.
