PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – An 11-year-old girl who was reported missing in Pasco County was found safe Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert for the 11-year-old after she disappeared from her school Monday morning.
Surveillance video showed her getting into a car with two people at a 7-Eleven store in New Port Richey at about 12:20 p.m. Monday. They were identified as 19-year-old Reginald Clark and a 17-year-old boy.
Detectives believe Clark and the teen met the young girl on social media. They were both arrested for interference with child custody, a felony.
Officials said the girl was found at the Tampa home of 22-year-old Luis Alberto Encarnacion, a man who she “perceived as her boyfriend.” Charges against Encarnacion are pending, authorities said.
