The runaway teenager from Deep Gap is being housed at the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s juvenile facility after she was found in South Carolina over the weekend.
According to Captain Dee Dee Rominger with the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office, 14-year-old Sydney Elizabeth Combs was found in Myrtle Beach on Friday.
Captain Rominger said a family member picked the girl up at her home in Deep Gap and took her to Taylorsville on July 21. Family members also had made arrangements to take Combs to Myrtle Beach to meet her father, Sydney Everett Combs, Jr.
The girl was found near her father’s residence in Myrtle Beach on Friday and was taken to the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s juvenile facility where she is being housed because the Alexander County District Court has issued a secure custody order for Sydney Combs.
Captain Rominger said the investigation is continuing and criminal charges are expected to be filed.
