WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have filed charges against a Canadian man found in Michigan last week with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 20-year-old Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill of Bewdley, Ontario, was charged Monday with transporting a minor out of state to have sex.
Authorities say McGill traveled to the south-central Kansas town of El Dorado to meet the girl. Her parents reported her missing Thursday afternoon. They were found Friday near Potterville, Mich., southwest of Lansing.
The girl told authorities she went with McGill willingly. According to court documents, McGill told police he met the girl online playing "World of Warcraft" and loved her.
Prosecutors in Kansas didn't have information Monday on a lawyer for McGill. He remained held in Michigan.
