A Volusia County sheriff’s deputy who was looking for a 13-year-old Oak Hill girl, who disappeared after school, went searching from motel to motel until he found her in a dark motel room with a 22-year-old Orlando man she met online, officials said Monday. When Deputy Royce James entered the doorway of the room at the All Suite Motel at 335 N.

Ridgewood Ave. in Edgewater, the girl ran into his arms and gave him a hug, according to officials. The suspect, 22-year-old Tyler Thompson, was taken into custody on a charge of interference with child custody, with the Edgewater Police Department adding a charge of traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child, officials said.

Additional charges are pending. Deputies responded to the missing child report around 6:15 p. m. Thursday, after the girl’s grandmother said she never came home, and never went to her basketball game after school, either.

Deputy James started investigating, and spoke to a friend of the missing girl, who said the victim was planning on going to a motel with someone she met online.

She said he may have picked up the victim at the Dollar General store in Oak Hill, according to the report. Officials said Deputy James went to the Dollar General to look for security video, and found surveillance images of the victim at the store.

An employee reported the girl said she was waiting for someone to pick her up. Next, Deputy James started visiting area motels, showing the front desk clerks a photo of the missing girl and searching the day’s check-ins for a match.

Deputies went to his room and knocked on the door several times before Thompson finally answered, and the victim came running, according to the report. When she was told she’d be taken somewhere to be medically cleared and interviewed, the girl asked Deputy James to stay with her.
