NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The weeklong odyssey of a registered sex offender traveling with a missing teenage girl from Florida ended after a sighting by a Louisiana truck stop cashier triggered a lengthy police chase, authorities say.

Officers pursued the pickup truck driven by 41-year-old Steven Myers for miles, throwing down spike strips that blew out most of the pickup's tires, law enforcement agents said, adding that Myers allegedly stabbed the 16-year-old girl and then himself before being subdued.

The 28-year-old cashier at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, La., said security footage showed that the two were in the store for 75 seconds. But she said she recognized the two from video she had chanced upon while scrolling through Facebook before being called to work for an unscheduled shift Wednesday night.

"My stomach dropped," said cashier Fawn Lasseigne Domingue.

The girl's family and neighbors had begun social media campaigns since the girl disappeared June 11 in the Tampa, Fla.
