Authorities are seeking the help of the public in tracking down a man who disappeared while out on bail in a pending East County child molestation case.
La Mesa police arrested Jeffrey John McPherson, 41, June 24, 2010 on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy he had met through MySpace.com. The crimes allegedly took place over a nine- month period.
In early December, McPherson failed to make a court appearance in the case, and he has been at large since, according to police.
McPherson, who is looking at several molestation counts as well as a charge of possessing child pornography, is a 6-foot, approximately 185-pound white man with brown hair, blue eyes and tattoos covering both his arms.
Anyone with information on his possible whereabouts should call the La Mesa Police Department at (619) 667-1400.
