Missing sex abuse suspect found in Florida

HOLMES COUNTY, FL (WDTV) -- A suspect missing for over a month is in custody after he was found in Florida.

Daniel Jones, 57, was being searched for after failing to appear in court on November 16th. Jones was accused of molesting a girl under 12, and had shown up to court the previous day. During the search, deputies found Jones' truck with bullet holes and a small amount of blood inside, causing him the case to be treated as a missing person case.

On Saturday, U.S. Marshals found Jones in Florida while attempting to get into a vehicle. Officials say he was arrested without any incident and taken to Holmes County Jail. He will appear in court in Holmes County before being extradited to West Virginia.
