They say it evolved into a broader investigation after they heard the girl was allegedly being held in Vancouver.

The girl was found with support from Vancouver police but the suspect was not present during the rescue.

RCMP issued an arrest warrant for Raimon Geday on April 5 and he was arrested four days later.

Geday is facing 14 charges relating to human trafficking, child pornography and the possession of firearms and drugs.
