An 11-year-old girl spent $2,500 on a taxi ride to go and see a boy she met a couple of years ago and who had kept in touch with her.

Lovestruck Alexis Waller left a note for her worried family telling them she had run away.

She went to a nearby petrol station with $10,000 in cash that she had taken from her grandma's sock drawer before hitching a lift to Little Rock.

From there she got a cab to take her on the 800-mile trip to Jacksonville, Florida.



She told Kark: 'He didn't really ask anything, he just asked me where I needed to go.

'I said "I need to go to Jacksonville, Florida". He's like: "Do you have money" and I'm like "yes".'
 
She was asked to pay $1,300 up front and said she would give the rest of the money when they arrived.

Her worried parents thought she might have been kidnapped and police were able to locate her.

They got in touch with the driver and they stopped nine hours away in Atlanta, Georgia, where her parents drove to meet her.

Speaking about his relief, her dad Brent said: 'You have the rest of your life to punish her, and you just want to hug her and just love her because you got her back and that's what's important.'
