Authorities say a 16-year-old teenager from northeast Arkansas who was missing since Saturday has been found in Nebraska.
More than 12 hours away from her home in Trumann, Arkansas, Arissa Farmer was found Thursday morning in O'Neill, Nebraska. Officers found the teen with a Craig Gillum, 52, from Dover, Tennessee, who police say she met on social media.
Billium was arrested in connection with the case at the Elms Motel in O'Neill, NE on charges of Felony Child Abuse and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. Gillium is currently incarcerated in the Holt County Jail.
Arissa’s mother, Tia, posted Thursday on Facebook thanking those who helped bring the girl home, saying “my husband and I will be able to hug our daughter again.”
This matter remains under investigation.
