GULFPORT (WLOX) -- A 15-year-old girl suspected of shoplifting at Wal-Mart turned out to be a runaway from Ohio.

Gulfport police were called to the Highway 49 store Friday after the teen was picked up by Wal-Mart security. During their investigation, officers found that the girl was listed on the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children's website.

The girl then told police she had been traveling with another 15-year-old female runaway, as well as Felix De Los Santos. Santos, 19, is wanted in Ohio for the felony charge of Interfering with a Family.

Santos and the other girl are still on the run. Investigators believe they're traveling in a black 2000 Ford Explorer with the Ohio tag "DRPAPI."

The teen arrested in Gulfport will be held until she can be returned to Ohio.
