Local authorities are scouring Instagram accounts in a criminal investigation after nude photos of Wake County high school students started appearing on them, according to a search warrant released Tuesday.

A woman told Wake Forest police last week that her daughter had learned that someone had posted nude photos of her on Twitter and Instagram. The girl is now 18, but the photos were from when she was 14 or 15, the mother told investigators.

Nude photos of other young women were also on the Instagram account, the mother said.
