A coordinated team effort between Oregon State Police (OSP) and Maui County Police Department (MPD), aided by the Baker and Union County District Attorney Offices, led to the arrest of a 20-year old North Powder, Oregon man who allegedly helped a 13-year old girl run away last week. The suspect and runaway juvenile female were found Friday night at a Maui resort after an OSP investigation determined they had flown from Oregon to Maui.
 
On March 18, 2011 an OSP trooper took a missing person report regarding a 13-year old female from North Powder in northeast Oregon. The missing girl was last seen at her residence Thursday and was not at her home Friday morning. OSP Major Crimes Section Detectives Dave Aydelotte and Greg Retherford led the investigation which determined the girl and 20-year old JORDAN RILEY PRATT, from North Powder, had taken a one-way flight Friday from Portland, Oregon to Maui where PRATT checked into the Westin Maui Ocean Club resort in Kaanapali.
 
At approximately 9:00 p.m. (Hawaii local time) MPD officers 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 Saturday to the issuance of a felony warrant for PRATT's arrest. The warrant signed by Judge Gregory Baxter listed the following Oregon Class B felony charges:
  • Kidnapping in the Second Degree
  • Custodial Interference in the First Degree
  • Sexual Abuse in the First Degree
  • Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the Second Degree
 
On Saturday, March 19, MPD officers arrested PRATT as a Fugitive from Justice and lodged him in jail where he awaits extradition back to Oregon.
