JACKSONVILLE (WVVA) - A Mercer County man has gone from missing to under arrest.

41-year-old Michael Jarrett of Matoaka was reported missing in August. He had last been seen by his family in July.

According to Sgt. J. Santana, Jarrett is now behind bars in Jacksonville, Fla., accused of committing fraud.

Santana says a family member of Jarrett's recently contacted the West Virginia State Police alleging that Jarrett had misused family funds. At that time, police changed Jarrett's status from 'missing' to 'wanted.'

Jarrett is now awaiting extradition back to West Virginia.
