Investigators believe the teen has been with Timothy Wind since her disappearance

A 14-year-old Connecticut girl missing since last month has been found in Colorado, and the man suspected of kidnapping her after months of online chatting is under arrest.

Acting on a tip from the FBI, police in Longmont, Colorado say they got a found the girl in an apartment there on Wednesday afternoon. They arrested 53-year-old Timothy Wind on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping and Internet exploitation.

Cmdr. Jeff Satur says Wind traveled from Longmont to Connecticut and back with the girl. He says the two met online and had been communicating for a while before he picked her up on Aug. 25.

That was when her family says she asked for permission to go outside.

Satur says it is unclear exactly how Wind lured the girl, who was not harmed.
