Cody Wilson demonstrating his 3D-printed gun in Texas last month

Austin Police said that 3D-printed gun blueprint distributor Cody Wilson cancelled his flight back to the US from Taiwan after learning the 16-year-old girl he allegedly paid to have sex with spoke to police.

The Taiwanese news agency said the island's immigration department would make arrangements for Wilson to return to the U.S.as soon as possible.

Taipei police reportedly handed Wilson over to the National Immigration Agency. While Taiwan does not have an extradition agreement with the US, police there have said they are cooperating with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force's investigation.

Texas and federal authorities launched an global manhunt for Wilson after learning of his whereabouts overseas and that he missed a scheduled return flight home.

The arrest was reported on Friday morning by a local CBS affiliate in Austin, TX, where police had filed an affidavit against Wilson on Wednesday, alleging that he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl he met on a "sugar daddy" website. He was charged on September 19 with sexual assault of a minor - a felony.

In his August ruling, Judge Robert S. Lasnik of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington granted a preliminary injunction on the blueprints with the intention of mitigating risks to the public, arguing that the lawyers who had filed suit against Wilson "have a legitimate fear that adding undetectable and untraceable guns to the arsenal of weaponry already available will likely increase the threat of gun violence they and their people experience".

He said before Wilson flew there, a friend of the 16-year-old girl informed Wilson that police were investigating the accusation that he had sex with the youth.

Wilson runs Defense Distributed, a company that deals in software and hardware to facilitate home weapon printing and machining. The girl told investigators that Wilson paid her $500 after they had sex and then dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant.

Wilson sexually assaulted her and then "retrieved five $100.00 bills from a bag on the floor" and gave her the money, the alleged victim told police, according to the affidavit. The crime is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Police said they were able to corroborate the teen's claims through interviews and surveillance footage.
