A 15-year-old girl who was missing and believed to be in danger has been found unharmed, according to Lancaster police.

Police said the teen was with 24-year-old Alexander Ramos-Pacheco when he was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in the area of Franklin and Fulton streets.

Ramos-Pacheco had an online relationship with the teen and traveled to Chicago to pick her up earlier this month, police said. She was reported missing April 2.

According to charging documents, a co-defendant identified as 23-year-old Heather Marie Orlando told police she traveled to Chicago with Ramos-Pacheco to retrieve the teen for the purpose of engaging in sexual acts.

Ramos-Pacheco and Orlando, both of 461 Lafayette Street, have been charged with aggravated indecent assault, conspiracy to commit aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and corruption of minors.

Orlando was arrested Monday and placed in Lancaster County Prison on $250,000 cash bail.
