CHANDLER, Ariz. - Chandler police say a missing 15-year-old girl was found in Texas with a 25-year-old man from North Carolina.

Police aren't sure Cassidy Bejarano and the man met, but say they may have met on the Internet.

Cassidy's mother told police her daughter had been going on the Internet and reached out to people who would talk to her online, trying to get a ride to California.

The two were found when they were stopped by Texas Department of Public Safety for speeding. The officer checked both of their names and found out Cassidy was missing from Chandler.

Police say the man she was with has been taken into custody in Texas. Texas DPS is investigating the case.

Cassidy's mother reportedly flew to Amarillo, Texas, to pick her up.

Cassidy left her home about 9:30 a.m. Friday and  left a note for her mother saying she was going to California.

She had her home without her medications and was considered an endangered child.
