A Tuscaloosa man is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl who was reported missing out of Jackson, Mississippi.
A relative of the missing girl told Tuscaloosa police that she may be at a location in the 4700 block of McFarland Blvd.
Police went to the scene and made contact with the girl. Investigators with TPD's Youth Aid Division also responded and began to investigate.
Officers found probable cause to charge Kornelius Pierre Simmons, 21, with second degree rape. He was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $30,000 bond.
More charges, possibly state and federal, could be filed against Simmons, according to TPD Lt. Brad Mason. The investigation is still ongoing.
