Cheyenne police are asking for the public's help in tracking down a 27-year-old man suspected of child sex abuse.

"We are trying to find Cody Nelson," said Officer Kevin Malatesta. "We've been looking for (him) for some time."

"He's suspected of sex abuse of a minor under 13 years old," added Malatesta. "There is an outstanding warrant for that charge."

Nelson is a 6-foot-4, white male weighing about 300 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.

"He has a distinctive nose piercing and lip piercing, as well as both ears are pierced," said Malatesta. "He has tattoos on his hands."

Anyone with information on Nelson's whereabouts is asked to call the Laramie County Dispatch Center at (307) 637-6525 or Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at (307) 638-TIPS.

"I wouldn't say (he's) a high-risk as in armed or anything like that, but he is a high priority for us," said Malatesta.
