A Wilkes County man has been charged with a felony sex offense in Myrtle Beach, S.C., for an incident that occurred almost two years ago.

The Horry County Sheriff’s Office charged Tracy Darrell McEntire, 53, of Greenfield Lane, Wilkesboro, with third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under age 16. McEntire turned himself in to the Horry Sheriff’s Office Thursday and was placed in the Horry County Jail under a $20,000 secured bond.

Det. Amanda Boyd of the Wilkes Sheriff’s Office said the incident for which McEntire was charged occurred in Myrtle Beach in July 2017 while he was on vacation there with family members and friends.

Boyd said it was reported by a relative of the victim to the Wilkes Sheriff’s Office on April 18, 2019. She said the victim was a male family friend of McEntire.

Boyd and an Horry Sheriff’s Office officer investigated the case.
