GLENNVILLE, Ga. -- The GBI says a 14-year-old girl who disappeared from Glennville, Ga. Saturday has been found in Norcross.

According to the GBI, Norcross Police found Griselda Cibrian safe Monday morning.

Initially, Glennville Police said she was abducted by a 24-year-old man who was considered armed and dangerous. A Levi's Call, which is Georgia's version of an Amber Alert for abducted children, was issued Sunday.

On Monday, GBI spokesman John Bankhead said the teen willingly left with the man, whom she had met in an online chat room. Apparently, she'd told the man she was 19, and when he showed up at her house, her parents tried to drive him away, but she hopped in his pickup truck and left with him.

Authorities believed the two were heading to Atlanta. Using cell phone technology, investigators tracked down the man's employer in Gwinnett County and found out that the truck actually belonged to his employer.

Bankhead said Cibrian called her dad after seeing media coverage about her disappearance, and a GBI agent who happened to be with her father got on the phone and convinced her to turn herself in.

The man she left with is now in Norcross police custody and being questioned.
