A 16-year-old girl who was the subject of a Wednesday night Amber Alert has been found and a male suspect is facing charges in her disappearance.
Captain Ryan Sears with the Barrow County Sheriff's Office said in an email statement that Melissa Abigail Molina was located in Hall County at about 3 a.m. In a Facebook post, Barrow County also confirmed that Roger Lanford was also located, arrested on previous warrants and faces new charges. "The male she was with has the following charges pending: kidnapping, interference with custody, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor," Sears said.
The GBI issued the alert Wednesday night at the request of Barrow County law enforcement, saying Molina was seen getting into a white 2004 Nissan Maxima with a male subject. The Barrow County Sheriff's Office indicated on social media that the girl was in extreme danger.
"The Maxima drove off at a high rate of speed, driving reckless [sic], passing vehicles and was last seen on Dee Kennedy Road going toward Highway 124," the post said. The vehicle has a Georgia tag reading: PBD 6016.
The Hall County Sheriff's Office and the GBI assisted the Barrow County Sheriff's Office in the case.
