A 12-year-old California girl has been rescued after authorities said she was abducted by a Virginia man, an admitted pedophile who went to prison for more than a year for threatening to kill either President George W. Bush or President Obama.
Nathan Larson, 40, of Catlett, is facing charges of kidnapping, child abduction, solicting child pornography from a minor and meeting a child for the intention of sex, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims told a news conference Saturday. The girl wasn't harmed.
Mims said Larson met the girl online in October and then groomed her over the next two months.
After flying to Fresno, Larson took a ride-share to the girl's house, persuaded her to sneak away at 2 a.m. Monday and go with him to the airport, the sheriff said.
