A young girl who was shown being sexually assaulted in a homemade videotape has been found safe.
Nye County sheriff's Detective David Boruchowitz tells The Associated Press, the girl, named "Madison" by authorities, is safe with family members and sheriff's officials.
He says widespread media accounts of the case led to the crucial tip that helped find the girl. He did not provide details of her identity, where she lives or how she was located.
Earlier today, authorities named fugitive Chester Arthur Stiles as a "person of interest" in the case.
Boruchowitz says Stiles is not related to the girl.
The Nye County sheriff says Stiles, whose last known address was
Las Vegas, is also wanted on an unrelated state warrant on a charge
of lewdness with a minor under 14 years of age and a federal charge
of being a fugitive.
Stiles remains at large.
