          Private investigator Robert Slattery helped track the whereabouts of the missing teen who traveled 700 miles across state lines from her home in Ohio to the Missouri home of a 41-year-old man she says she met online.

          In the video above, Slattery shares how he and his partner used social media to locate the missing teen.
