I’m sure you’ve all read this one by now…
SAGINAW, Mich. The grumblings about MySpace predators are bound to grow louder after this.
A 16-year-old girl traveled to the Middle East to see a West Bank man she met on MySpace.com. Katherine Lester was detained by Jordanian officials when she arrived in Amman this week.
Her mother, Shawn Lester, said Katherine had persuaded her in April to help her get a passport so she could go on a two-week vacation to Canada with a friend’s family. That turned out to be a cover-up for her trans-Atlantic plans.
When Katherine disappeared Monday, the Tuscola County sheriff’s department contacted the FBI, who traced the teen to a flight from New York to Amman.
FBI spokesman Brian Endrizal declined to provide any details and would not comment on the man’s identity or background.
All righty then.
See what happens when you don’t monitor your kid’s MySpace. They go to the Middle East.
I can honestly say that this is the weirdest story I’ve talked about on this site.
