SPARTANBURG, SC -

The two girls, ages 15 and 16, were believed to be in South Carolina and were taken to Tennessee during a three-day trip, according to various media sources.

The girls Michaela Davidson, 16, and Taylor Cromer, 15, were last seen last Tuesday afternoon at Dorman High School and were taken to Gatlinburg, Tenn, by two men, according to WHNS-TV.

Michael Harvey Elgin, age 20, has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Elgin is in the Spartanburg County Detention Center with a $15,000 bond. 

Deputies have also charged Cullen Dale Still, age 18, with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Still was not immediately found on Friday, but has since been jailed.

Warrants state Elgin and Still caused Michaela Davidson and Taylor Cromer to be truant from school.

Elgin told deputies that the girls were taken to a Motel 6, where they stayed in a room that Still had reserved in his name, according to Goupstate.com

After the Motel 6 stay, the group went to Gatlinburg, Tenn. where they stayed another night, according to Goupstate.com

The girls were reported as being in good condition when they were turned over to their families

A background check from the State Law Enforcement Division shows Elgin has previous convictions for shoplifting in Spartanburg in 2009. He was convicted of making a bomb threat and disturbing schools in July, 2010.

Still has been arrested twice in the past nine months, but the SLED report shows no convictions on his record.

According to the original report the two girls were last seen Tuesday afternoon.  Their parents say the teens never came home from school.

Thursday deputies reached out to the media asking for help locating Davidson and Cromer.

The teenagers' parents filed reports Tuesday stating that their daughters never came home from school, investigators say.
