A Madison man has been charged for being connected in the case of a missing girl from Tennessee who was found in Wisconsin.

Bryan David Rogers, 31, is facing a federal charge of knowingly persuading a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct, according to a release.

The girl was found last Thursday after going missing Jan. 13. According to WISC-TV, the day the girl was found, her adoptive father had also been charged with rape in Tennessee.

An affidavit alleges that Rogers discovered the victim through an online game and the girl told Rogers she was being sexually assaulted.

Rogers then asked for an explicit video from the girl and then drove to Tennessee to abduct the girl. If convicted, Rogers could face up to 30 years in prison.
