Briana Returned Safely to Her Family
Police say 12-year-old Briana ran away with 30-year-old Raymond Lewis. They met while Lewis
was doing odd jobs at her family's home.
Lewis, a registered sex offender, had started a friendship with Briana that came to an end when her mother found some of their correspondence and discovered his status as
a sex offender.
She fired Lewis, but she says the relationship carried on in secret. Cops say Briana and Lewis rode from Tallahassee, Florida to Atlanta, Georgia together before they were apprehended by authorities. Briana has been returned to her family, while Lewis faces charges in connection with the incident.
