A 14-year-old Parkview student from Stone Mountain who was reported missing on May 24, has been found and reunited with her family, according to the Gwinnett Police Department.
The girl was found at a home on Sanders Drive in Morrow with 41-year-old Russell Cheeves, who has been charged with enticing a child for indecent purposes and interference with custody.
Detectives were able to locate the girl and Cheeves after receiving information that led the lead detective to believe that the child was at the home on Sanders Drive.
