Girl gone, sheriff thinks man from Fla. lured her

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) -- A western Kentucky sheriff says there is reason to believe a missing high school freshman got into a car with a man she met on the Internet.

According to The Paducah Sun, the last video evidence of 14-year-old Sidney Williamson is Graves County High School surveillance of her walking on a road that leaves the campus Tuesday after school.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said Thursday there is no video of her getting into a car and his office doesn't have a description of a man or a vehicle. Redmon said investigators have developed evidence that Williamson might have left school with a man from Florida.

The sheriff said his office is trying to get the girl's cellphone records.
