NewsChannel 11 is learning more about the internet activity of the man accused of soliciting a Lubbock child online. 

Isaac James Scott, 21, is out on bond.  He's charged with online solicitation of a minor. Investigators say he engaged in explicit chat, and e-mailed nude pictures of himself to an 11-year-old. He then allegedly arranged to meet the child a at local McDonalds.

We found Scott has pages on two popular social networking sites, MySpace and Facebook. Millions of people use these sites to share messages and pictures, but investigators say Scott used a site like these to solicit a child.

According to the MySpace page registered to Isaac Scott, he has not logged on since Tuesday. That's when police took Scott into custody and seized his personal computer.

According to investigators, Scott and the child arranged to meet at a McDonald's Tuesday night. That meeting never happened though, because the child's father found out first.  He contacted police, and they found Scott at the McDonald's Tuesday and took him into custody.

We tried to contact Scott at his home, but no one answered the door.  Neighbors told us they didn't know much about Scott, other than they think he goes to Texas Tech.

While it's a scary thought, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, one out of seven youths is solicited on the internet. 

They urge children to restrict access to their online profiles, only allowing those in their contact lists to view them.

Parents are encouraged to help children pick a gender-neutral screen name, making sure it doesn't include information revealing their identify or location.

Children are urged to use the privacy settings on social networking sites to restricts access to their spaces or blogs to only people they know in person.

One of the most important safety tips, talk to your children about which sites they visit, and who they talk to.
