Jenks, Okla. — We have updated information regarding a man accused of molesting an 11-year-old in Jenks, back in 2009.
The U.S. Marshals Service says Russell Wilson bonded out of jail back in 2011 and then disappeared.
"One of our deputies here in the office went to work trying to find this guy and could not find a single trace for years and years," U.S. Marshals Service said.
