Michael Ren Wysoloyski, 31, was arrested in connection with Burns' disappearance and faces several felony charges including false imprisonment, sodomy and aggravated sodomy, interference with custody and cruelty to children involving first-degree deprivation.
A missing North Carolina teenager, who vanished a year ago, has turned up at a home in Georgia.
Hailey Burns, 17, had been missing from her Charlotte home since last May when a special agent got a tip that she might be somewhere near Atlanta.
It's unknown if Wysolovski has a lawyer.
The FBI says Burns' family have asked for privacy "to focus on their daughter".More news: North Korea tests suspected ICBM rocket engine

Prior to vanishing, Burns' loved ones had last seen the teen at her home just after midnight on May 23, 2016.
"He coerced her into listening to him and not following our directions, and the next thing I knew, my daughter wasn't communicating with me", Burns said past year.
Hailey's father Tony Burns told NBC Charlotte in June 2016 how her disappearance was the worst feeling he could have ever imagined.
"Hailey has been reunited with her parents". "We had tried to eliminate all social media from our home. You have to hope that they still find her, wherever she is".
Channel 2's sister-station, WSOC-TV, said when Burns originally disappeared, there was information that she may have left on her own accord, but they don't know if she was helped by others.
