TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- The Pima County Sheriff's Department says a girl reported missing from her Tucson-area home has been found in Texas.

The sheriff's department said Friday that Ashley Kingsbury, who just turned 14, and Anthony Jordan, 19, were located on a Galveston,Texas, beach.

The sheriff's department says a Galveston bank teller recognized the pair and contacted authorities.
Both the girl and the suspect are in Galveston police custody.

Charges against Jordan are pending as the investigation continues.

A sheriff's department spokesman says Jordan and the girl had met on a networking website and had planned to meet last Monday.

The search for the pair also extended to Utah because it was believed Jordan was driving a car with a Utah license plate and might have been headed there.
