(KMOV)  -- A man is facing felony charges after exposing himself to a teenage girl and crossing state lines into Illinois with her.

Police say they found an abandoned car near Maryville which led them to a nearby hotel and Nathan Maphis, 36, the alleged suspect.

According to charging documents, Maphis exposed himself while in the shower with the teen and fondled her. The two then allegedly drove from Ohio to Illinois. It is reported the teen is between 13 and 17-years-old.

Authorities say the teen was reported missing, but are unsure of how long she was gone.

Maphis is facing two sex related felonies and federal charges. He is currently being held on $500,000 dollar bond.
