MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A second person has been arrested in the case of a 14-year-old Las Vegas girl who authorities say was brought to North Dakota in a human trafficking case.

Minot police say 18-year-old Kevin Fleming was arrested Monday in Las Vegas and will be brought back to Minot to face a felony human trafficking charge. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.

The teen girl’s mother contacted police earlier this month after seeing messages from Backpage.com on her daughter’s email account and seeing a photo of a girl who looked like her missing daughter.

Police earlier charged 20-year-old Tayari Meadows, of Las Vegas, with felony human trafficking. Authorities say Meadows told police she believed the girl was 18 and that she was helping the girl escape from her mother.
