LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -- The search is over for a missing Virginia teenager and the man she was believed to be with when she was last seen. The Virginia State Police canceled its missing and endangered alert for Aysia Monique Lewis. The 16-year-old Christiansburg girl was found safe early Friday morning in Little Rock, Arkansas. Police also located 33-year-old Donald Bruce Quesenberry Jr. Lewis and Quesenberry were located sometime after a post was made on a Facebook page that appeared to belong to Quesenberry.

"She's safe," the post began. "I would never hurt her in any shape form or fashion, I've asked her to go home several times and she won't."

State Police issued the initial alert for Lewis on Wednesday morning. Police said they believed the teenager was in danger of being the victim of sexual exploitation. The alert also indicated Lewis was last seen at Christiansburg High School and may be headed to Florida with Quesenberry.

It is unclear, at this point, how police tracked down Lewis and Quesenberry in Arkansas.

Quesenberry had previously been charged with sex crimes against a child, reported citing Tennessee court records. A Christiansburg Police spokeswoman told Lewis and Quesenberry did communicate with each other online.

This is a developing story.
