Lufkin Man Arrested After Picking Up Girl He Meets Online

by Jessica Cervantez

A 22-year-old Lufkin man who apparently went to Pennsylvania to pick-up a 13-year-old girl he met online is now in the custody of authorities.

Nathan Wedgeworth and the juvenile were on their way back to Lufkin from Pennsylvania when they got stopped by the Texarkana police department.

The girl was reported missing Thursday. The two had been talking online for several months and apparently planned the incident.

The girl was unharmed. Wedgeworth is being held in a Texarkana jail waiting to be extradited.
