Cody Wilson, the owner of a company that makes untraceable 3D-printed guns is wanted on an arrest warrant accusing him of sex with an underage girl, according to Fox News. Wilson has left the U.S. and was last known to be in Taiwan, investigators in Texas said Wednesday.
Austin Police Cmdr. Troy Officer told reporters that the department was working with national and international law enforcement to locate Wilson, whom they said missed a scheduled return flight to the U.S.
Officer said it was unclear why Wilson went to Taiwan, but he added that a friend of the 16-year-old alleged victim told Wilson that he was under investigation before he left. The commander also said Wilson’s name had been entered into a national law enforcement computer listing him as wanted for sexual assault of a child.
Investigators said Wilson met the girl for sex at an Austin hotel on Aug. 15 and paid her $500 afterward. A counselor for the teenager reported the accusation to Austin police a week later, saying Wilson met the girl online.
