News Release: Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office
A 14-year-old Hillsborough County girl was reported as a runaway. She was discovered to be in the company of a sex offender from Minnesota, 25-year-old Matthew McLean.
The girl and McLean reportedly met on a social media website and made arrangements to leave together. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office learned the two may have been in the Tallahassee area, so they contacted the Tallahassee Police Department.
TPD located the girl and McLean at the Greyhound bus station in Tallahassee, where they arrested McLean.
The girl’s parents have since driven to Tallahassee to pick her up.
McLean will have a first appearance tomorrow morning at 8:30am at the Leon County Courthouse.
