A 35-year-old Wilder man who was sought by police while a 14-year-old girl went missing earlier this month has been charged with lewd and lascivious conduct.

The incident began on Oct. 1 when police started looking for the missing girl, which led investigators to believe there was inappropriate contact occurring. After a day of searching, officials found the young girl safe.

The Wilder Police Department says Hector Flores Arias of Wilder has also been charged with distribution of a controlled substance to a minor and is being held in the Canyon County Jail.

Police say it's possible there could be additional victims.

Anyone with further information is asked to call 208-454-7531.
