Fifteen-year-old Calah Waskow vanished from her mother’s home in the dead of night, running away with her friend’s 37-year-old father, Jason Johnson - a man Calah says she’d been having sex with for six months.
In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Thursday, Calah tells the story of how she says she became involved with Johnson. She says Johnson started talking to Calah in text, on the phone and through social media. “And then he just kept talking to me, like a really, really cool parent.” Not long afterward she says, “it started to get flirty.”

Calah says she and Johnson stayed up all night, texting and talking. She claims it was just a few days later that they started “hanging out” in person, and that she started having sex with him within a week after that.
Calah claims she and Johnson were having sex for six months before their “relationship” was discovered. She claims it was then that he convinced her to run away with him to avoid getting into trouble. Johnson currently faces multiple charges, including aggravated child molestation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes.
