JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man being held on state charges accusing him of kidnapping a 12-year-old girl now also faces a federal charge.

The Joplin Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1K1PVtC ) a federal grand jury in Springfield has indicted 47-year-old Kevin M. Nosser on a charge of enticement of a child. He’s accused of abducting the child from her home in Miller on May 22. The grand jury returned the indictment Wednesday.

The federal indictment alleges that he used the Internet and a cellphone to entice the girl into sexual activity.

Nosser’s being held on $1 million bond in Lawrence County on a charge there of child kidnapping. His lawyer in the state case didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.

Authorities say law enforcement found the two together in Potosi.
