An Air Force reservist stationed at Dover Air Force Base was charged Wednesday in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl who became impregnated after her involvement in an ongoing sexual relationship with the suspect. 

Byron P. White, 34, of Camden, Wyoming, was charged with third-degree rape and continuous sexual abuse of a child following an investigation that began last December. 

A Division of Family Services hotline received a report indicating that a 14-year-old girl had reported allegations of sexual abuse by an adult male. Further investigation confirmed that the victim was pregnant and had allegedly been involved in a sexual relationship with White since May of 2017. 

Authorities said the incidents took place at White's residence in the 3000 block of Henry Cowgill Road.
