A heroic sheriff’s deputy in Florida rescued a 13-year-old girl after she was lured into a motel room by a 22-year-old man.
The Volusia Sheriff’s Office posted the story on its Facebook page along with the compilation of body camera footage.
The department said it initially responded to the report of a missing child around 6:15 p.m. on Thursday. The report was filed by the child’s grandmother, who said the victim did not return home nor go to the basketball game after school that day.
Deputy Royce James then set out to solve the case. He began by interviewing a friend of the victim, who said “the victim was planning on going to a motel with someone she met online.”
The friend suggested that the suspect’s name might be Tyler, that she believed he was from Orlando and that the victim was to be picked up at a Dollar General
