FRESNO, Ohio (WSAZ) – A man wanted on charges in Lincoln County has been arrested in Ohio by US Marshals.

Officials say Dustin Daugherty, 39, of Fresno, Ohio was in Fresno, Ohio.

Daugherty is being held at Coshocton County Jail while he awaits extradition to West Virginia.

Daugherty is facing charges of filing false reports, child concealment, soliciting a minor, obstructing an officer and phone harassment after a teenager went missing last month.
