READFIELD (WGME) – State Police say a missing 14-year-old girl from Readfield has been found in Georgia.

Officials say 14-year-old Heavenlee Benjamin of Readfield had been missing for two weeks before being found in Smyrna, Georgia.

Police say the 35-year-old man she met on social media shot and killed himself as officers entered the home.

They say the man, Robert Gooden, took a bus to Maine in February, before returning to Georgia with the girl.

An arrest warrant was issued Monday, charging Gooden with kidnapping.
