Savannah-Chatham Metro Police said that the search is over along Johnny Mercer Blvd. on Whitemarsh Island for a suspected child molester. 

James Dover, 40, who is wanted in connection with the molestation of a 13-year-old girl, is in custody. 

During the search three schools were on lockdown, including Islands High School, Coastal Middle School and Marshpoint Elementary School. That school lockdown has since been lifted, according to the school district. 

Calls went out to the parents letting them know. School district spokesman Kurt Hetager said everything went smoothly, no major issues came up and that it was an effective lockdown.

The Merritt condominiums were also on lockdown.
