(Theodosia) – An Ozark County man who has been on the run since August 2013 has been arrested by law enforcement in Ozark County.

39-year-old Ernest Dale Engels of Gainesville was charged with a number of counts of felony child sex abuse in Howell County. He was arrested around 9 AM Thursday morning in the Theodosia area, and was later taken to the Howell County Jail and held on $250,000 bond. The abuse was said to take place in Howell County and involved an 8-year-old female.

Ozark County Sheriff Darrin Reed says a tip from a concerned citizen led them to the Theodosia residence where Engles was found hiding in a closet.
