BOISE, Idaho – An 18-year-old California man has been charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old Idaho girl after police say the two met on a social networking site and he got her to move in with him.
Misael G. Juarez of Oceano, California, is being held in jail on a charge of second-degree kidnapping.
Police say Juarez met the girl on MySpace this summer and got her to move into his residence in California, about 860 miles southwest of her hometown of Boise. They say the girl was reported as a runaway to Boise police on June 4 and was found at Juarez's home on June 17.
Juarez was extradited to Boise this week.
Police didn't say how the girl got to California, and it was unknown if Juarez had an attorney.
