Charley Hollin, 59, a U.S. man wanted by the FBI on charges of alleged kidnapping, child molestation and unlawfaul flight to avoid prosecution is believed to be hiding in a Latin American country, and he could be in Costa Rica.

According to the FBI, on Jan. 20, 1999, Hollin allegedly abducted a 10-year-old girl from Seymour, Indiana, outside a local girls’ club and later sexually assaulted her at knife point. After the attack, Hollin allegedly forced the unclothed victim to leave his car.

An arrest warrant was issued in the state of Indiana on Feb. 3, 2000, on two counts of confinement and three counts of child molestation. Additionally, on April 5, 2007, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court, District of Indiana, after Hollin was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, an FBI report stated.

FBI agents believe Hollin might be hiding in Costa Rica as he enjoys the outdoors, boating, water-skiing, sports cars and has previously raised cattle. He claims to be a devout Pentecostal and a private detective.

“He also professed to have fake hair pieces, mustaches and other means of disguising his true identity, as well as exhibiting a badge to others indicating that he is a police officer,” the report stated.

On Monday, a local Interpol office in San José said they had not received any alerts regarding the alleged presence of Hollin in the country.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to his arrest. Tips can be reported to Interpol, located in San José’s Judicial Investigation Police facilities, by calling: 800-8000-645, or to the U.S. Embassy in San José at: 2519-2000.
