Missing 13-year-old girl found, 40-year-old man arrested
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office located missing runaway, 13-year-old Samantha Dodson, in good condition today.
According to police, Dodson was found shortly after 4 p.m. in a wooded area just outside of Oregon City. 40-year-old Oregon City man Kelsey McCune was also located and taken into custody at the same location and time. Both were together when contacted.
McCune was taken into custody on a warrant charging him with a single count of second-degree kidnapping. But after interviews with detectives he was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail and now faces charges that include first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, second-degree sex abuse, first-degree custodial interference and first-degree kidnapping. He faces potentially decades in prison on the listed charges, several of which are covered under Oregon's Measure 11, and bail is currently set at $790,000.
Police said a tip from a citizen who spotted two people matching the description on the flyer led deputies to the location.
The citizen reported seeing the two in a wooded park area at the north end of the Country Village Mobile Home Park. Containment was set up and the area was searched by the Clackamas County SWAT Team. The SWAT Team was used due to the size of the area to search and need to quickly cover the area.
Police first began searching for the pair on Wednesday, when Dodson's parents reported she was missing. A warrant for McCune's arrest was issued Friday.
