Authorities have detained a person of interest in the Florida Amber Alert issued Thursday for a missing Fort Myers girl.

Diana Alvares, 9, was last seen Sunday in the 3500 block of Unique Circle in Fort Myers, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Lee County Sheriff’s Office has detained 28-year-old Jorge Guerrero. The Amber Alert said Alvares might have been in the company of Guerrero.

Detectives tracked Guerrero down in a neighboring County. According to police, locating Guerrero did not resolve the case as Alvares was not with him.

Police are not commenting any further, due to the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information should call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (239) 477-1000. Or, to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000, call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
