Vehicle Found Of Wanted Man In Stephens County

DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - The Stephens County Sheriff's office says it has found a sport utility vehicle belonging to a former Marine who didn't make a court appearance on a child sexual abuse charge.

Officials told KOCO-TV  late Tuesday the SUV was found about 9:30 p.m. but there was no sign of Charles Dyer.

Prosecutors charged Dyer last year with child sexual abuse, but a mistrial was declared and the proceeding was rescheduled. He was supposed to appear for a court hearing on Monday, but
didn't show up. A judge revoked Dyer's bond and a bench warrant was issued.

Dyer's lawyer, David Hammond, says he doesn't know where his client has gone.

A federal jury acquitted Dyer of a charge of knowingly possessing an unregistered grenade launcher in April 2010.
