CLEVELAND - You don't need a computer in the house any more for your child to get in trouble, 19/43 News' Ed Gallek reported.
Parents need to know that a new phone-chat system could be used to lure your child away, and it just happened to a child in Cleveland.
Just last week, a Cleveland detective spent three days looking for a 13-year-old boy who had vanished.
Police finally found him with a 19-year-old man near East 105th Street and Superior Avenue. They said that the boy had been lured to a home over a free phone chat-line with the promise of sex.
The phone chat-lines work in a similar fashion to Internet chat rooms, except that you talk live to real people.
"A parent wouldn't know because it wouldn't come across as a long-distance call, so these calls could be made over a period of time and a parent would never know," Cleveland Police Det. Greg King said.
Police arrested Demetrius White on sex charges.
