MAUI, Hawaii -- A 20-year-old Oregon man who helped his 13-year-old girlfriend run away last week was arrested Friday in Hawaii.
Jordan Riley Pratt, along with the teenage girl, was tracked down to a resort in Maui, Hawaii after an Oregon State Police investigation determined the two had flown from Oregon to Hawaii.
According to Oregon State Police, an officer took a missing person report regarding a 13-year-old girl from North Powder, a small town in northeast Oregon. The missing girl was last seen at her home March 17 and was not at her home the following morning. OSP Major Crimes Section Detectives Dave Aydelotte and Greg Retherford led the investigation which determined the girl and Pratt had taken a one-way flight Friday from Portland to Maui where Pratt checked into the Westin Maui Ocean Club resort in Kaanapali.
At approximately 9 p.m. (Hawaii local time), officers from the Maui Police Department contacted Pratt at the resort room and confirmed the missing 13-year-old girl was asleep in a bedroom. After awakening her, she was taken into protective custody and transported to the Lahaina Police Station. She was subsequently released to Child Protective Services until she can be returned to her parents.
The continuing investigation with the assistance of the Baker County District Attorney's Office led March 19 to the issuance of a felony warrant for Pratt's arrest. Pratt is charged with the following Class B felonies:
- Second-degree kidnapping
- First-degree custodial interference
- First-degree sexual abuse
- Second-degree unlawful sexual penetration
