SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities in South Dakota are looking for a man charged with possession of child pornography who failed to appear in court this week.

Sgt. Mike Walsh of the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Department says a warrant has been issued for 50-year-old Kevin Harty, of Sioux Falls. Walsh says Harty was out on bail and scheduled for trial on Wednesday.

Walsh says Harty was arrested on December 2013 after police found child pornography at his home. Walsh says Harty was “identified as a downloader,” and authorities don’t believe he produced child pornography or was a direct danger to children.

Walsh says deputies have received tips about Harty’s location but haven’t made an arrest.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Harty has an attorney who could comment on the case.
