HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A 15-year-old girl who went missing from the Myrtle Beach area in May has been recovered and is okay, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The 24-year-old man who was allegedly in her company when she went missing was arrested Tuesday, according to jail records.

The girl, who went missing from Myrtle Beach since May 1, is back with her family, according to Rebecca Kovar with the NCMEC. She also confirmed that an adult male was arrested when they were located. 

Horry County Sheriff records say that 24-year-old Javier Robles Ramirez was arrested for criminal sexual conduct with a minor third degree, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Ramirez was previously wanted by detectives after the girl was believed to have fled with Ramirez, possibly to the Charleston area. She was reported missing May 2 after she did not show up to school.

Records show Ramirez is being held on a combined $12,500 bond. He was granted a $10,000 bond for the criminal sexual conduct with a minor third degree charge and a $2,500 bond for the contributing to a delinquency of a minor charge.
