Search continues for Bridgeton girl missing for almost 2 months

  Search continues for Bridgeton girl missing for almost 2 months This weekend will mark two months since a 5-year-old Bridgeton girl went missing while playing in the city park. There is still no sign of the child, although authorities continue their search and her family continues to hang on to hope she'll be found safe. Local interest has waned a bit since Dulce Maria Alavez vanished from the playground on a warm September day. But her story has spread by way of social media across the United States. Family and friends are doing what they can to help and keep their spirits up as days go by with no new information from federal, state and local law enforcement.

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office says a man was arrested for the second time in less than two months for allegedly trying to communicate online with a 13-year-old girl - the same girl who was actually a detective.

The sheriff's office said James Smith, 21, of Athens was arrested in September after communicating with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl who was actually a detective in the law enforcement agency's Internet Crimes Against Children unit.

The sheriff's office said that when Smith bonded out of the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center in mid-October, one of his conditions was to have no internet access.

The sheriff now alleges that not only did Smith access the internet, he used it to try and again communicate with what he thought was the same 13-year-old girl, within just three weeks of his release.

Smith now faces two new counts of obscene internet contact with a child.

The sheriff's office said he was arrested at his home in Athens-Clarke County on Monday night and will be transported to the Cherokee Adult Detention Center on Tuesday.
