    A man will not be charged for posting a fake Craigslist ad listing a toddler for sale.   

    Several people flagged the ad Wednesday. It stated a 2-year-old baby girl was for sale for $300 in Portsmouth, Va. 

    Portsmouth police said a 22-year-old man posted the listing.  He was located using his computer's IP address.     

    Police found no children at the location.

    The ad was determined to be a prank, according to officials.
