In this week's edition of the Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted we have for you a Belpre man wanted for allegedly sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl.

Police say on June 13th, 62-year-old Richard Wix sexually abused a 7-year-old girl in the Parkersburg area.

Last week, a Wood County Special Grand Jury indicted Wix on one count of first degree Sexual Abuse and one count of first degree Sexual Assault for the incident, but police haven't been able to find him since.

"Richard Wix knew the victim through family friends. His appearance has probably changed now, he supposedly has a goatee and may have gained some weight, since the last time he was seen," says Captain Delmas Barker, Parkersburg Police Department.

Wix faces anywhere between 5 and 100 years behind bars.

Captain Delmas Barker believes he may have fled the area.

If you have any information on where Wix could be, you should call your local police department or sheriff's office.

You can catch the next edition of Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted, next Wednesday, on WTAP News at 6.
