Lander Asks For Help From “America’s Most Wanted”
LANDER, Wyo. (AP) — Lander police are hoping "America's Most Wanted" can help them find a fugitive wanted for sexual abuse of a minor.
Forty-four-year-old Wes Nesbecker has been missing since November, when detectives attempted to serve him with a warrant in the case but couldn't find him.
Chief Jim Carey said police asked "America's Most Wanted" to feature the case. The Associated Press reported that producers were in town on Thursday to gather information about the case.
Nesbecker was arrested in November of 2010 for allegedly providing drugs to a minor. That investigation led to allegations of sexual abuse.
Nesbecker's cell phone was tracked to an area near the north rim of the Grand Canyon and his vehicle was found in December on a remote road. Carey says federal investigators think he may have left the country.
