OKEECHOBEE, Fla. -- The FBI wants the public's help in locating a man suspected of distributing child pornography.

Ranger Sylvan Lacy, 40, allegedly engaged in child pornography in 2009 and traded images as of 2011, the FBI says.

According to the FBI, more than 40,000 sexually explicit images of child pornography were reportedly found on Lacy's computer.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Lacy in Kentucky on July 9, 2015. Lacy was charged with distribution and possession of child pornography.

Lacy's arraignment was set for July 14, 2015, but he failed to appear and his whereabouts are unknown.
