College student arrested in Ricky Henson case

(WFLX) - A man has been arrested in connection with the case of Ricky Henson. The Fort Pierce teen disappeared Thursday, but was later found safe in Orlando.

The 15-year-old was lured by a college student via social media, according the the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office. Henson ended up in an apartment in Central Florida.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agents interviewed the college student over the weekend. It was their lead on social media that led Sheriff Mascara to Orlando and Ricky's recovery.

Twenty-two-year-old Brandon Seldon of Orlando was arrested on one count of lewd battery upon a minor.
