Child abuse suspect sought

The FBI and law enforcement agencies statewide are looking for a suspect who is considered armed and dangerous in a child abduction case.

The subject is described as a white male about 55-60 years of age, 185-200 pounds, short strawberry blond or white hair and neatly trimmed strawberry blond or white mustache or beard.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a white Toyota 4-Runner that had a silver over black Thule car top carrier on the roof on Monday. That topper was recovered by law enforcement and is being examined for evidence.
