FRANKLINTON, N.C. — A Louisburg teen was arrested Wednesday in connection with the disappearance of a  14-year-old girl who was found Tuesday.

Charles Kelton Sumner, 16, of 2842 NC 98 West, was charged with resisting a public officer and contributing to delinquency of a juvenile.

Sumner may have assisted in helping Kali Elizabeth Norris, 14, leave home and then hiding at his residence, police said.

Norris went missing last Thursday and was found on Tuesday afternoon.

Sumner was being held under a $16,000 bond at the Franklin County Jail.

Police said that because Norris is a juvenile, they would not disclose any details about the relationship between the two or where Norris was found.
