NORTH SYRACUSE, NY (AP) - State police charged a 22-year-old man with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old found in 2005 in a hotel after a missing-child alert. Connor Izard of Clay was charged with rape and committing a sexual act, both felonies, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
State Police Investigator Timothy Siddell said the 16-year-old Geneva girl met Izard on the Internet. The two talked online for a month before deciding to meet, he said.
They went to the Knight's Inn in Liverpool and had plans to leave for New York City and "points unknown" after that, he said.
Authorities in Geneva had issued an Amber alert for the teenager.
