Sheriff Kight said the girl had made contact with a man in Claxton via the internet and caught a ride to the area with a long-haul trucker who let her off at the Metter I-16 exit.  After spending some time with the man in Claxton, she made her way around Candler and Emanuel counties and was found with a family on the Ben Boatwright Road near Normantown.

The sheriff said the girl's mother picked her up this morning for the return trip to Charlotte.
