Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A 24-year-old man was in jail Monday on suspicion of several felony offenses including intercourse with a minor and possession of child pornography after he was allegedly found at an Escondido house with a missing 12-year-old girl who he met on a social networking site, according to police and jail records.

The girl's mother reported her missing to police about 2:10 a.m. Sunday, according to Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter.

Escondido police officers searched for the girl, interviewed her friends and checked her cellphone records. They learned she might have been with a 24-year-old San Dimas man, Carter said.

The investigation revealed the girl had met the man on a social networking site, Carter said.

Officers who were following a lead found the girl in a bedroom of a house in the 1000 block of Nightingale Place, near East Lincoln Avenue, Carter said. She was found along with a man who was identified by police as Christopher Bradley Nutt, who had recently moved from San Dimas to Escondido, Carter said.

The girls were reunited with her parents, Carter said.

Nutt was arrested on suspicion of intercourse with a minor, sodomy with a child under 14, lewd acts with a child under 13, oral copulation with a child under 14, possession of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a child, Carter said. He was jailed in lieu of $1.175 million, according to jail records.

Police asked anyone with information on the case to call them at (760) 839-4758 or their anonymous tip line at (760) 743-8477 or to contact them online at escondido.org/police.
