Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a 16-year-old girl who police say may be meeting up with a man accused of trafficking her.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Friday (https://goo.gl/TAH3GX ) that Malia Carbaugh ran away from home Thursday.

Beaverton, Oregon police spokesman Mike Rowe says she lives with her parents in Portland and Oregon City.

Rowe says Carbaugh has a plane ticket to Las Vegas and police believe she's trying to reunite with James Demarr Jackson.

Jackson is charged with human trafficking a minor in California. Police say he trafficked Carbaugh in Nevada and California. Jackson, who is from Las Vegas, is now out on bail.

Carbaugh is 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 100 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Detective Chad Optiz at 971-563-7545.
