by Jessica Cervantez

A Lufkin man accused of driving to Pennsylvania to pick up a 13-year-old girl he first met online is now facing criminal charges in the case.

22-year-old Nathan Wedgeworth is charged with interfering with the custody of a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

Wedgeworth and the girl were stopped by police in Arkansas, apparently as they were traveling back to Lufkin.

The girl was not hurt. Federal charges are also possible.
