Bloomington Man Facing Child Solicitation Charge in Greene Co.

A Bloomington man is facing a Child Solicitation charge in Greene County in connection with the disappearance of a 13-year-old Greene County girl earlier this week.

The Greene County Daily World reports the girl was found in Louisville, Kentucky and returned home after an intensive investigation by the Greene County Sheriff's Department, with the assistance of the US Marshal's Service and Indiana State Police.

The man she was with, 29-year-old Howard Estes, was arrested at the home of his father in Louisville on preliminary charges of custodial interference and engaging in an unlawful transaction with a minor.

The Daily World reports that when he is returned to Greene County, Estes will be charged with Child Solicitation.

Authorities say the girl had been having Facebook conversations with Estes.
