Officers discovered through the girl’s mates during their investigation that she had been speaking with a man named “Roman” from California. According to Hillsboro police, the man was later identified as Alex Roman Nguyen, 28, of California.

According to court filings, the 15-year-old and Nguyen got to know one another through the clash software, which is frequently used by video gamers to communicate.

Documents state that when Nguyen and the juvenile first spoke, the girl allegedly revealed her age to be 18. According to court documents, he later learned that girl was actually 15 years old.

These conversations turned into sex video chats as the teen provided nude pictures to Nguyen, according to the court records. The two later traveled to Ohio to meet and attend the Festival of Bells during the week of July 7, according to police.

According to court records, Nguyen told FBI agents that the youngster sneaked him into her home twice during the interval between her abduction and his arrival.

The youngster allegedly shared a photo of the two of them in the teen’s bedroom while they were dating with a buddy. While in Hillsboro, the 28-year-old slept in a rental car that he left parked close to the girl’s house. The teen’s father reported her missing on July 16 in the morning following an argument they had the previous evening.

When detectives investigated the girl’s Hillsboro bedroom, they discovered a job application with “Roman’s” address on it. This information directed the detectives to San Diego, California. According to Hillsboro PD, San Diego detectives were able to fully identify “Roman” as 28-year-old Alex Nguyen.

According to the FBI, Nguyen and the girl dropped off the rental car at CVG and boarded a bus headed for El Paso. The FBI was waiting for them when they arrived at the Greyhound station because of Nguyen’s cell phone.

Without incident, Nguyen was brought into custody. Police said that the girl is safe and will be returned to Ohio.

Federal prosecutors have accused Nguyen of kidnapping with the purpose of having an unlawful sexual relationship. The Southern District of Ohio, where the arrest warrant and complaint were issued, will receive his extradition.
