ROCKFORD, Mich. (WOOD) — A 14-year-old girl who was believed to be with a man she met on the internet has been found safely.

“Got her,” her father wrote in a message to News 8 Monday night. “She’s ok.”

The teen, whose name News 8 is no longer reporting because she is a minor, had last been seen Sunday afternoon in Rockford, Michigan State Police said. Authorities said she called her mother once after that, saying she was with a 50-year-old man she met online.

It was not known Monday night where she was found or if anyone was arrested.

Rockford police were handling the investigation.
