It's been exactly a week since an Albuquerque teenager left for school but never showed up.
An Amber Alert remains active for 14-year-old Lacey DeWent. Police believe she is headed to Florida or New Jersey with a man she met online.
Lacey's mother, Jessica DeWent, said 26-year-old Robert Butler has been arrested before for being in contact with her daughter.
U.S. Marshals are now leading the search for Lacey. Jessica DeWent tells KOB Eyewitness News 4 that investigators are hopeful they'll find her.
Butler and Lacey may be traveling in a blue Subaru XV Crosstrek or similar vehicle.
Lacey is 5'4" tall and has brown hair and hazel eyes. She has a birthmark behind her ear in her hairline.
