Officials say Matthew John Dietz was charged on Sept. 19, 2018 with two counts of accosting a child for immoral purposes.

Dietz fled to avoid prosecution, officials said, and now has a federal warrant out for his arrest.

Though Deitz is wanted for the crime in Charlevoix, Michigan, officials say he has family connections to Georgia and may be in the area of Dalton.

Officials described the fugitive as 5-feet-9-inches tall with a weight of 160 pounds. He has a panther tattoo on his right ribcage, tribal band on his left arm, and other tattoos on his back, thigh, right arm, and right shoulder.
