New York Sex Offender Arrested; 14-Year-Old Missouri Girl Remains Missing

Authorities say a 14-year-old Missouri girl remains missing after the arrest of the registered sex offender from New York who may have been with her. 

An endangered person advisory was issued early Wednesday for Mersadiez Shiann Rohr, of Smithton, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The town is about 150 miles west of St. Louis, between Jefferson City and Kansas City. 

Police say the girl and her family's 2004 GMC Yukon were discovered missing at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

At the time, police say they thought the girl may have gone with the sex offender, identified as Matthew Fischer, according to the paper. Police updated their advisory Wednesday morning to say that the man was arrested in Pettis County, Missouri, but the Yukon remains missing.

Details on Fischer's criminal history weren't immediately available.
