SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - The Clark County Sheriff's Office is investigating claims a mentally disabled teen was lured by an online predator.
Jeannie Tomlinson filed a report after noticing text messages on her 17-year-old daughter, Carly's, cell phone.
"She told me she was talking to Justin Bieber," said Jeannie. "I told her to let me see the phone."
Jeannie said the text messages were sexually explicit.
"At one point he asked her if she was sexually active," explained Jeannie. "Another message asked her (Carly) if the two of them were alone in a room together, what would be her wildest dream."
Jeannie tracked the number to a 40-year-old man in Arlington, Texas. She then went to the Clark County Sheriff's office.
"There wasn't enough to charge him with a crime here," explained Deputy Sheriff Robert Wagner. "But, this is very serious."
Deputy Wagner has been in contact with authorities in Arlington. Its unclear if the man has a prior record.
"Arlington authorities are looking into it," said Deputy Wagner.
Jeannie believes this all started when her daughter was online prior to a Justin Bieber concert held in Columbus on July 12.
"This man made a fake profile, claiming to be Justin Bieber. He told Carly she could come back stage after the concert. When officials in Columbus realized it was a trick, they allowed Carly to meet the real Justin Bieber. At that time, Jeannie was unaware the man had exchanged phone numbers with her daughter too."
Jeannie hopes what happened to her daughter can be a lesson to other parents and children.
"Its scary," said Jeannie. "The internet is a dangerous place. Monitor your child's Facebook page and cell phone."
