An Amber Alert has been issued for a 12-year-old girl from Margate that was last seen at 10:45 p.m. Saturday in the 7600 block of NW 18th Court in Margate, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Authorities believe Megan Williams was abducted by an unknown man she met over the Internet and could be traveling in a silver Chevrolet Malibu toward Texas.

Williams had been communicating with the man from Texas over the Internet and he had arranged to pick her up from her home Saturday night, police said. Her sister last saw her when the two went to bed in separate rooms, but when her parents came home, Williams was missing, a report said.

Williams was last seen wearing a blue halter top, blue jean shorts and a black hooded sweatshirt, officials said.

She is described as a white female with brown hair and brown eyes, about 5'1" tall and weighing 85 pounds. The girl sometimes wears glasses, police said.

The missing child alert has been issued statewide in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana. A be on the lookout alert has also been issued in Mississippi.

Officials are working the FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to locate the girl. Anyone with information can contact police at (954) 972-7111.
