EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — A man has been arrested in connection with a solved missing persons case from earlier this month.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said the case began July 14, when they asked the public to help find 17-year-old Sabrena Waite, who had been reported missing by her father. Sabrena was found within 24 hours of the alert.

Deputies then learned that Sabrena had been staying with a man, and issued a warrant for his arrest. Thursday, deputies arrested the suspect, 20-year-old Devonte Price.

Price is charged with harboring a runaway, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and accessory to second-degree burglary.

Deputies said Price told them he knew Sabrena was a runaway, and helped her hide.
