Delaware County Indiana authorities have been looking for Daniel P. Jeffers since the summer of 2012, when he was formally accused of sexually abusing a 9-year-old boy.
In recent days, Jeffers, now 57, was taken into custody by authorities in Chatham County, Ga. Extradition proceedings are under way.
Jeffers was charged in November 2012 with child molesting, a Class C felony carrying a standard four-year prison term, and dissemination of matter harmful to minors, a Class D felony with a standard 18-month sentence.
He is also accused of showing pornographic images to the alleged molest victim and another boy.
When a search warrant was served at Jeffers’ Muncie home in July 2012, a Delaware County sheriff’s investigator was “told by family members that Don had not been seen since hearing of these allegations,” according to a probable cause affidavit.
