BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) -- Actor Erik Estrada wants family time to include children playing on computers.

Estrada is making the rounds through West Virginia to promote his film "Finding Faith." It's based on a true story about a 14-year-old Virginia girl who was abducted by an online predator and held captive for three days before being rescued by police.

Estrada is best known for his role in the television show "CHiPs." He's also a deputy sheriff in Bedford County, Va.

Estrada tells The Register-Herald ( he wants parents to monitor childrens' computer time, even if it means moving computers out of their kids' rooms.

Estrada appeared at a screening last weekend in Teays Valley and on Thursday in Beckley.
