— A 20-year-old Fayetteville man with a slew of outstanding felony charges is wanted for kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and selling her into sexual servitude, Cumberland County authorities said Saturday.

Authorities said Kadeem Kirk, of 5719 Meharry Drive, transported the underage girl from her home to a local motel and forced her to have sexual relations with five men. Investigators said the victim was paid money and narcotics for performing the acts. 

Kirk faces 23 felony charges, including second-degree kidnapping, facilitating the prostitution of a minor and conspiracy to prostitute a minor. In January, authorities issued warrants for Kirk in connection with the runaway case of a 14-year-old girl.

Police said Kirk, a black man who is 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds, has several tattoos on his body. One tattoo on the left side of his chest has the initials "FJK." Kirk, who has black hair and brown eyes, is also known to wear diamond stud earrings and gold chains.  

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.
