A 33-year-old Caucasian Robert Fyke has been arrested and charged for the kidnap of two young black girls from the state of Georgia. One of the girls who was kidnapped is still unnamed. The other girl is 14-years-old and her name is Kyla Flagg. Fortunately, that Kyla has been found safe and sound.
Kyla Flagg has been located safe and sound in another state! We are working with other agencies for her safe return to Georgia. Thank you to everyone who shared! #WeAreDKPD

Reports from the investigation reveal that Fyke started an online relationship with Flagg before leaving Georgia and bringing her to Texas. Fyke said he met the minor in a group chat with users looking to find a relationship with an “age gap of 17 years or more.” According to KCBD11.
Authorities say the 33-year-old admitted to exchanging explicit pictures with the minor before they met and the two continued to engage in sexual behavior once they arrived in Lubbock.
Robert Fyke has been arrested on possession of child pornography charges. Additionally, federal charges have been filed as well. The federal charging docs state that the unnamed 14-year-old girl was taken from Georgia on May 15. Fyke told police that she was taken by another man around June 11 and could be in another state at this time.
We are hoping that the predator is put away behind bars for good.
