A man has been charged with sexually abusing a teenager while she was in his care on NSW's south coast.
Detectives began investigating after a 13-year-old girl from the Shoalhaven area was reported missing on Sunday before police found her a short time later, NSW Police said in a statement on Tuesday.
Danny Peter Griffiths, 55, has been charged with two counts of having sexual intercourse with a child and two counts of intentionally sexually touching a child.
Police allege Griffiths sexually abused the girl on multiple occasions while she was in his care.
His matter was briefly mentioned on Tuesday at Nowra Local Court, where he was granted conditional bail to reappear at the same court on September 14.
