PLYMOUTH, Mich. (AP) -- A 37-year-old man from the Detroit area has been charged with having sexual contact with a teenage girl.

Robert Louis Messer faces first- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges as well as a count of accosting a minor for immoral purposes.

The Northville resident was arraigned Thursday in Plymouth District Court. He was assigned a bond amount of $2 million. A preliminary examination is scheduled for Nov. 8.

Messer told the judge he was "not a threat to anyone." He appeared on a television screen in the courtroom via a video feed.

Authorities say Messer and the 15-year-old girl disappeared after they were seen together Sunday.

The two were found Tuesday in a Washtenaw County field.

Police have said they left notes expressing their love for each other.
