The FBI says a boy has been arrested in New Jersey after a 13-year-old girl from Rhode Island was reported missing, then found alive.

 

FBI spokesman Greg Comcowich would not release the boy's name, saying he was a juvenile. He says the boy is scheduled to appear in federal court in New Jersey later Thursday, and his name would be released then.

 

Comcowich would not say in what town the boy was arrested and said he did not immediately know in which court he would appear.

 

Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the Portsmouth girl after she was reported missing by her mother Wednesday morning. Police say a witness saw someone matching the girl's description leave home with a man.

At the time, police said that she had been abducted and believed that she may be in imminent danger.

They described the suspect as a white man in his 40s or 50s driving a red Chrysler Sebring or Chrysler Concord, possibly with New Jersey plates.
