PAHRUMP (KTNV) — UPDATE MARCH 7: The Nye County Sheriff's Office reported the 27-year-old Danny Lisk was taken into custody in Laredo, Texas while he was attempting to cross the border into Mexico.

ORIGINAL STORY
Nye County Sheriff's Office says police are looking for a Pahrump Valley High School staff member after 2 students say he befriended them on social media and made inappropriate sexual requests.

A nationwide arrest warrant has been issued for 27-year-old Danny Lisk.

On Jan. 30, officials received a report that a 15-year-old student at Pahrump Valley high school was on the receiving end of flirtatious behavior from Lisk on Snapchat.

The student says she received a friend request from Lisk on the social media application around Jan. 17.

After she accepted the request, he then identified himself as Mr. Lisk.

Lisk would send pictures of himself to her while at work and made comments about the girl's body, authorities say.

Police say, he started asking for nude photos and eventually asked her to go out drinking.

Lisk offered to pay for nude pictures of the teen, and officials say he offered the student $50 for sexual intercourse.

A second student then came forward, telling police she also received a Snapchat friend request and similar messages from Lisk.

Deputies executed a search warrant through Snapchat and found photos of female high school students on his account.

Several photos focused on the students' buttocks and appeared to have been taken without their consent.

Police also found several hundred messages and friend requests to students at Pahrump Valley High School.

Lisk faces charges of Promotion of Sexual Performance of a Minor, Luring Children, and Unlawful Use of a Minor in Producing Pornography.
