UPDATE (November 18 5:43 p.m.):

A federal criminal complaint has been filed against Victor Arroyo in the Federal District Court for the State of Maryland. The complaint charges him with transportation of a minor.

UPDATE (November 17 5:11 p.m.):

Police in North Carolina have charged 22-year-old Victor Arroyo of Raleigh in connection to the Jasmine Baker case.

Baltimore County Detectives have also obtained an arrest warrant for Victor Arroyo charging him with kidnapping in connection with what happened in Baltimore County in this case. He has not been served with the arrest warrant yet.

UPDATE: November 15, 10 a.m.

Jasmine Leighlin Baker was returned to Maryland this morning by FBI agents. She will be interviewed by BCoPD's Crimes Against Children Unit as part of this ongoing investigation, after which she will be returned to the care and custody of her family.

The suspect, a North Carolina man whose identity has not yet been released, is held in North Carolina by federal law enforcement agents, who continue to question him. Charges are pending.

"It took dedication and skill on the part of our detectives and our partners at the FBI's Baltimore office to find this young girl. I am proud of the work they have done on this case," Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson said.

Original post:

Jasmine Leighlin Baker, the 12-year-old White Marsh girl who disappeared Tuesday morning after she left for school, was located by federal officers in North Carolina this evening.

FBI agents, who have been assisting BCoPD with this case, found Jasmine at about 10:30 p.m. in a residence in the Raleigh area. She appears unharmed and is in North Carolina, in the care of our federal law enforcement partners. She has been taken to a hospital for a medical examination.

Jasmine was in the company of a North Carolina man, believed by police to be in his 30s. This man is being questioned by federal agents.

Detectives continue to investigate how Jasmine met this man and the nature of their interactions over the past few days. Jasmine has not yet been interviewed.

Digital forensics -- specifically, the clues provided by Jasmine's activity on her iPod and Xbox -- played a crucial role in detectives' ability to find her.

UPDATE (November 14, 12:15 p.m.)

BCoPD detectives, working with the FBI Baltimore Office and the Maryland State Police, continue to search for Jasmine Leighlin Baker, a 12-year-old White Marsh girl missing since Tuesday. They have investigated about 100 tips so far. Please continue to call police at 410-307-2020 with any information you believe may be relevant to this case.

UPDATE (November 13, 2:30 p.m.)

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Jasmine Leighlin Baker ask anyone who is a social media contact of the missing girl to contact police at 410-307-2020 as soon as possible; they believe her social media contacts may be helpful as they attempt to locate her.

Anyone with information about Jasmine should continue to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020. The 12-year-old Perry Hall Middle student -- missing since 7:30 a.m. Tuesday --- has never been reported missing before.

Police are aware of reports of an unfamiliar blue pickup truck seen near Jasmine's home in the 4200 block of Soth Ave., 21236. Detectives are investigating these reports, as well as several reports of other unfamiliar vehicles in the area. Contrary to unconfirmed reports, detectives say they have no evidence that Jasmine has been abducted.

BCoPD detectives have confirmed that Jasmine has a history of communicating with men -- including men in other states -- using Xbox Live and an iPod Touch. However, police cannot confirm that she has had any such contact in the last few weeks. Detectives have not noted any social media activity by Jasmine Baker since she was reported missing.

Detectives say Jasmine engaged in texting and live chat through the Xbox, which she also used to play games. She is known to strike up conversations with people she meets while playing games, as well as with other people.

Jasmine used the social messenger app "Kik." That is the only social media platform that detectives have been able to confirm Jasmine used, though they believe there are others.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has conducted a review of Jasmine's social media profile to see if she had additional social media user names. The Center did not find any additional user names for Jasmine.

The FBI's Baltimore office is extending the publicity regarding this case to other states along the East Coast, particularly in the mid-Atlantic. Police do not have any indication that Jasmine has left Maryland; however, as a precaution detectives are broadening the reach of this search.
