Shirley Teen Charged With Hiding Runaway Girl
A college freshman from Shirley has been arrested for harboring a 14-year-old Southold girl who ran away from home in his Westchester County dorm room, police said.
Charles Matthews was charged Tuesday with endangering the welfare of a child and obstruction of governmental administration.
Southold Town Police said the girl’s mother reported her daughter missing Monday after finding a note that caused the family to fear for the victim’s safety—a case that mirrored that of 16-year-old Ashley Murray of Peconic, who was found safe last month after 12 days missing.
Local authorities and State University of New York Police found the girl in Matthews’ dorm room after he allegedly wasn’t forthcoming about the girl’s whereabouts, police said.
He was released on $250 bail.
