(WXYZ) - Daniel Spagnoletti did what any parent would do when he came home and found his 15-year-old daughter, Shelbi, missing: he panicked.
There’s no bigger fear, period,” he said.
The panic turned into terror when he grabbed the iPad sitting on her bed.
“They had left a detailed, very descriptive conversation on the computer,” Spagnoletti said. “It was very graphic.”
He found a string of messages from Shelbi and her girlfriend to a 20-year-old man, who asked to have sex with them and also drinks.
The police report stated the man also said he was interested in a “threesome.”
Shelbi and her friend were using an app called "MeetMe”, a social media site that is gaining a lot of popularity.
Until June of this year, the site was called MyYearbook, but it changed its name and has become one of the top 20 most visited sites in the county.
It’s like Facebook or MySpace, but with a twist. When you log on, it lists strangers who are online and close by, using GPS to show how far people are away from you.
According to the Website, you have to be 13 years old to sign up.
"There’s probably a hundred kids on there, and there’s only one thing on their mind,” Spagnoletti said.
When it comes to verifying age on the site, a MeetMe spokesperson said it's tough to know who's telling the truth and says they've have had "some issues" in the past.
Shelbi and her girlfriend were picked up by the 20-year-old and that's when Shelbi answered a call from her dad.
Within minutes, he was on his way and flagged down Glendale police officers to come with him.
Before they arrived, the 20-year-old man took off.
Daniel says he’s coming forward to warn other parents about this site.
