GOLDEN CITY, Mo. (AP) - A man has been charged with kidnapping a 12-year-old southwest Missouri girl who remained missing more than 24 hours after she was seen getting into a vehicle.

KYTV reports that 34-year-old Bobby D. Bourne Jr., of Lockwood, was jailed Tuesday night in Barton County on $1 million bond.

Bourne had been taken into custody Monday evening after being found in a vehicle that witnesses said had picked up Adrianna Horton at a Golden City park about 90 minutes earlier.

Officers from than a dozen agencies were searching for Adrianna.

The girl's father, Golden City resident James Horton, said Bourne had once worked for him and that their children played together.

Adrianna's mother, Wendi Jackson, traveled to Golden City from her home in Overland Park, Kan., and says she feels "lost."
