Missing & Endangered: another teen runs off with a convicted sex offender

15-year old Erin Nembhard left home in Port St. Lucia, FL Sept. 16th to meet Corey Witty, a 35-year convicted sex offender she'd me over the internet, at his home in Opa-locka, FL. The teenager snuck out of her house late Friday night and was driven by another man she'd met on the internet, 21-year old Eduardo Narvaez, first to his Miami home where she spent the night, and then to Wittey's house the following morning. Witty, who has been arrested and is being held without bail on 3 charges of lewd and lascivious battery on an unidentified child, admitted he spent two days with Nembhard but claims she left his house unharmed at 2:30 last Sunday afternoon. Narvaez was arrested at his home on Wednesday and has been charged with contributing to the deliquency of a minor & harboring a runaway.
Investigators in South Florida are still trying to find Nembhard, a girl who grew up in Port St. Lucie and who has no friends or relatives in the Miami metropolitan area. Nembhard, a ninth-grader at Treasure Coast Christian Academy in Port St. Lucie, took a suitcase and backpack with her when she ran away but left those at Witty's home, investigators said.

There have been several reported sightings of Nembhard, who is 5'2" & weighs 100 pounds, on Carol Street in Miami and it looks like she's actively avoiding the police. Anyone with information should contact Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS or National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 (1-800-THE-LOST)

UPDATE (27SEP05): Erin Nembhard went to the Opa-locka police station yesterday and asked to go home.
