A 47-year-old Cape Breton man is facing additional charges after he was accused of abducting a young girl, reports CTV News.

Along with charges related to the abduction of the 14-year-old girl, Darcy Dwayne Doyle has received charges including obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.

Doyle, who is from Mira Gut, Nova Scotia, was remanded into custody and is awaiting a bail hearing scheduled for September 2.

Doyle made a court appearance over tele-remand with Sydney provincial court on Wednesday.

According to police, they found Doyle and the 14-year-old on Saturday near Cape Breton’s Canoe Lake area after she had been missing for more than a week.

The indigenous girl’s identity is being protected by a publication ban.

Police reportedly thought she was travelling with someone she knew at the time of the girl's disappearance.

A ground and air search was launched days after the girl was reported missing and it went on three days before authorities found the two.

The RCMP received criticism for failing to send out an Amber alert and taking several days to begin an active search.

Police said that at the time, the criteria for an Amber Alert was not met because they were under the impression that the teen had willingly gone with the man.

A localized emergency alert was not issued for close to a week after the girl was reported missing.

A number of the island’s First Nation communities are planning to implement their own alert system that sends residents alerts via text, phone call or email.
