FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) – Online porn videos led police to a missing 15-year-old girl and the arrest of a Davie man.

The girl’s mother found images of her daughter that had been posted on Periscope, Pornhub, Modelhub, Snapchat, and other websites months after she went missing.

In the videos, the girl was with a bald man whom police recognized as someone the girl was with in February, when a convenience store clerk recognized her and called authorities.

Store surveillance video showed the girl trying to shield her face so the clerk couldn’t see her. The girl and the man got into a Dodge Challenger with another man and drove away.

Investigators eventually linked the car to 30-year-old Christopher Johnson and conducted surveillance at the man’s apartment in Davie. On Tuesday, they arrested him after he and the girl got into a black Dodge Challenger.

The girl told detectives that many of the porn videos had been made at Johnson’s apartment, according to a police report.

Johnson denied having sex with the girl, but “the victim stated that she got pregnant from the defendant and he took her to the clinic to have an abortion,” Detective Adam Granit wrote in the report.

No other details about the victim were provided, including why she left home or where she is now.

Johnson is charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a child and is being held on a $75,000 bond.
