Virginia Beach Police Arrest Man After Linking Him To Local Incident

There’s a bizarre new twist to a story that began last weekend in Albemarle County. Police in Tidewater have filed felony pornography charges against a Tennessee man who’s linked to the recent disappearance of a 16-year-old girl from Albemarle County. Virginia Beach detectives arrested 24-year-old Jonathan Lee Messer (pictured) on Wednesday, and he’s being held in that city. Messer is accused of possessing and producing child pornography. The mother of the teenager told Facebook readers last Saturday that her daughter had been abducted from her home in the Dunlora subdivision. A neighbor found theĀ girl walking on East Rio RoadĀ last Saturday morning. Police are not elaborating on how the charges against Messer are linked to the local teenager’s disappearance.
