‘Hooks are in:’ Father says daughter was manipulated online before disappearance

Oregon man is facing sex-related and kidnapping charges

An Edmonton man says his daughter was fun-loving and kind but started to change as the 13-year-old got caught up in psychological games with an older man online. 

Noah Madrano, 40, was arrested by FBI agents in Oregon a week after the girl was reported missing. He is charged with rape, sexual abuse and kidnapping and is to appear again in Oregon City court July 12.

“Your kids are safer playing in the park than they are playing on the internet,” the girl’s father said in an interview Wednesday.
