(Lander, Wyoming) – A three man crew with America’s Most Wanted stopped in Lander today to interview detectives about 44-year-old Wesley Nebeker, a former Lander resident who is at large and wanted on 18 felony warrants for sexual abuse of a minor. Nebeker was arrested in November of 2010 on two counts of providing drugs to a minor, but he was released a short time after. A year later the 18 felony warrants were issued and Nebeker left town. The last sign of Nebeker authorities were able to find was his 1998 silver Toyota Camry in December of 2011, located in a remote area near the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Searches were conducted by foot and aircraft, but they were not able to locate Nebeker and they now have reason to believe he could be as far away as Spain.
Nebeker is a caucasian male, weighing 230 pounds and is 6 foot, 6 inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes. He was the manager of the Downtown Motel on Lander’s Main Street before fleeing.
Anyone with information on Nebeker’s whereabouts is urged to call the Lander Police Department at (307) 332-3131.
