LA MESA (CNS) - Authorities asked the public for help Thursday in locating a man who disappeared while out on bail in a pending East County child molestation case.

La Mesa police arrested Jeffrey John McPherson, 41, last June on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy he had met through MySpace.com, Lt. Dan Willis said. The crimes allegedly occurred over a nine-month period.

In early December, the suspect failed to make a court appearance in the case, and he has been at large since, according to Willis.

McPherson, who faces several molestation counts as well as a charge of possessing child pornography, is a 6-foot, roughly 185-pound white man with brown hair, blue eyes and tattoos covering both his arms.

Anyone with information on his possible whereabouts is asked to call the La Mesa Police Department at (619) 667-1400.
