Deputies believed Ross could have been in the Maiden or Newton area.

On Monday, deputies said Ross reportedly called the Lincoln County Communications Center to let officials know that he was not missing. The sheriff's office then learned he allegedly had an outstanding warrant from 2016 for failing to appear inc court.

He was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and given a $500 bond.
