The Jamestown Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a man accused of child abuse or neglect, according to Nick Hardy, Jamestown police officer.

James Wallace Abell Jr., 22, of Jamestown, is wanted on warrants charging him with abuse or neglect of a child. He had been released on bail for the first abuse charge at the time a second offense was reported. That bail has been revoked and he is currently wanted on two warrants.

Hardy said the charges are a Class B felony because the child is under the age of 6.

Abell has family in Carrington and Valley City.

Anyone with information regarding Abell is asked to contact the Jamestown Police Department at 252-1000.
