Police looking for accused child pornographer after failure to appear
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are looking for a man accused of lewdness with a child under 14 and producing child pornography.
52-year-old William Thompson of Las Vegas was originally arrested in 2012 after police were contacted in November.
Thompson operated a photography studio on West Craig Road called Storybook Studios. Police were told that he was taking sexually explicit photographs and videos.
Thompson's only known victim at the time was a boy under the age of 14.
The pornographic acts allegedly happened over several months when the boy's mom dropped him off for modeling photos. Police suspected at the time that there could be more victims.
Thompson was scheduled to appear in Justice Court for a hearing on Sept. 11. He did not appear.
Police say they have been able to link him with additional cases, including several outside the continental United States, since his arrest in 2012. Arrest warrants have been issued for his arrest.
Anyone with any information on Thompson's location is asked to call the sexual assault section at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at 702-828-3421 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
