Bartow County deputies booked 18-year-old Ryo Dixon Ratcliff into the jail on Wednesday afternoon for interstate interference with custody and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The Muncie Star Press reported that Muncie Indiana Deputy Police Chief Melissa Pease stated on January 19th that Ratcliff was missing from Bartow County. They believed he was with missing Muncie 16-year-old Haylee Cummings.
Muncie Police canceled a statewide Silver Alert on Wednesday when they reported Cummings was safe. They believed she was in extreme danger and possibly needed medical assistance. They say the case remained under investigation.
We reached out to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office multiple times for additional information, but they have not responded.
