An Amber Alert has been canceled for a missing 14-year-old girl from Glenville, GA. 

Authorities said the teen left home to meet Raymundo Aranda-Parra, 24, a man she had met on social networking site MocoSpace.

Norcross Police Sgt. Bill Grogan said the teen called her parents from the Knights Inn on Brook Hollow Parkway in Norcross Monday morning to say she was ready to go home.

Police believe the teen and Aranda-Para have been in a relationship for about seven months.

Grogan said they are not sure if he knew her true age because the teen's profile lists her as 19.

"This is possibly the third time they've actually seen each other, but I believe it's the first that they've actually gone anywhere together," said Grogan. "There is no indication that she was forcibly taken. What we are leaning towards right now from both of them was it was voluntary."

Aranda-Parra is facing charges of interference with custody and statutory rape. He was taken from the Norcross Police Department to the Gwinnett County Detention Center where he is being held without bond.
