The Orange County Sheriff says the girl thought she was interacting with someone her own age from IL - as did her parents.

On Sunday, Alice Johnson's dad noticed she was gone when he tried to wake up her for church.

Byrns first made contact with the child through an online video game platform.

Her phone was being tracked by the Orange County Sheriff's Office and was traveling north with Byrns.

At around 4 p.m. Bibb Sheriff's Deputies were contacted by Resident Agent in Charge Andy Smith, of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Florida officers tracked her cellphone to pinpoint the 11-year-old to Macon, where police found her with a 24-year-old man at a Holiday Inn, reported WESH-TV. Sheriff Demings said he believes that Bryns is a child predator and hopes justice will prevail in this case.

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

"You really need to know who it is your children are communicating with and you really need to monitor their dialogues", said Demings.

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

Byrns is now being held for the F.B.I.at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center.

The girl has been reunited with her family, officials said.

"She's lucky to be alive, she's lucky the circumstances are not any worse than they are", police said.

At Monday's press conference, he said Byrns is NOT a registered sex offender, but there could be other victims. "He may be charged with additional charges".
