RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - A massive teen sexting investigation involving six Virginia counties is now underway. The investigation started in Louisa County a few weeks ago after nude photographs of a 14-year old and two 15-years olds were discovered on Instagram.

Within days, investigators uncovered more than a thousand sexually explicit photos being shared on two Instagram accounts involving teens from Albemarle, Fluvanna, Orange, Goochland, and Hanover counties.

Investigators have seized nearly 24 cellphones.

Possessing child pornography is a felony in Virginia.

This is a developing story.
