Atlanta (AP)--Two men accused of using the Internet to lure two Texas teenagers to their Georgia home are facing statutory rape and molestation charges.

Richard Mason, 22, and Brandon Self, 25, were being held without bond Thursday in a Georgia county jail.

Both men face two counts each of enticing a child, child molestation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, statutory rape and interference with child custody-interstate.

Their first court appearance was scheduled for Friday.

Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the girls when they disappeared on Tuesday afternoon after being seen walking from their homes in a subdivision near Dayton, about 35 miles northeast of Houston.

Police in Rome, about 55 miles northwest of Atlanta, say Mason and Self met the 15-year-old Liberty County girls on the Internet.

The men drove about 750 miles to Dayton, picked up the girls and drove back to Rome, police Capt. Denise Downer-McKinney said. It did not appear that the girls were being held against their will, she said.

An investigator with the Liberty County Sheriff's Office and an FBI agent were on their way to Rome on Thursday to bring the girls home.
