Police find missing teen with man she met online

GRANTS PASS — Police have found a missing 16-year old California girl in Southern Oregon with a man she met online.

Police say the teenage girl from Wheatland, Calif., has diminished mental capacity.

She reportedly sent a text message to a friend while traveling with the man, requesting the friend come and get her.

Officers worked with the girl's cell phone company to monitor the cell phone pings generated by her phone and tracked her movements.

A Jackson County Sheriff's Department deputy stopped them here and arrested David Anthony Faboo, 37, from Hillsboro on a California warrant.
