| by Michael Allen

Mistie Atkinson, the Nice, California mom who was arrested after she was caught having sex with her 16-year-old son, reportedly tracked her child down using Facebook. Atkinson hadn't seen her son in 15 years.

According to the Daily News, after the 15-year absence, Atkinson began sending her son inappropriate messages on Facebook, while he was living with his father. Atkinson did not have custody rights to her son.

Police reported that the 16-year-old boy had videos on his cell phone that showed Atkinson performing oral sex on him. Police also found nude photographs that Atkinson had sent her son as she began the incestuous relationship earlier this year.

Atkinson was booked into the Napa County Jail and charged with incest, oral copulation of a minor, contact with a minor for a sexual offense and sending harmful matter to a minor.

She is being held in jail on bail of $200,000, which is $50,000 more than George Zimmerman's bail for killing Trayvon Martin.
