Missing Australian school girl allegedly groomed by convicted killer on Snapchat

A missing Australian school girl has been found living in a New York basement with a convicted killer who is accused of grooming her for sex on Snapchat.

Sean Price was arrested last week following an ongoing investigation between Australian and US authorities.

The 39-year-old allegedly met the 16-year-old girl from Sydney via Snapchat and began grooming her for photos before paying to fly her from Sydney to the US last month, 7NEWS reports.


Price has been charged with a number of offences including third degree rape.

He was refused bail in a Brooklyn court on Wednesday and remanded in custody.

The girl has since returned to Australia with investigations ongoing.
