ARLINGTON, Texas (KXII) - An Arlington man has been arrested for kidnapping a Honey Grove teen found safe at his home after an Amber Alert was issued Thursday morning.

Police say 13-year-old Kionna Braxton’s mom, Amanda Taylor, arrived home from work just after midnight to find her daughter gone.

With help from the FBI, DPS, and Arlington Police, Honey Grove says they found Braxton about two hours south in Arlington.

Police arrested and charged Nolan Neighbors, 31, with kidnapping.

Detectives said they believe Neighbors and the teen chatted online and arranged to meet, which is what brought them to Arlington.

She’s now safe back home with her family.

*****Update**** Kionna has been located and is safe at this time. At this time no other information will be released.
