NEW ORLEANS —A day after New Orleans police released the name and photo of a man wanted for allegedly sexually abusing two teen boys, Ryan Rodgers has not been located.
Police say the 36-year-old is accused of “grooming” the teen victims for more than a year. The victims told police Rodgers “toughed them inappropriately while they slept” and they “woke up to Rodgers fondling them.”
Rodgers is also accused of buying the teens underwear and making them pose in front of him.
Most of the encounters occurred, according to police, inside Rodgers’ Baronne Street apartment.
“It’s scary, my kids live here, but also play here,” said Kelli Jones, a resident of the same complex.
Police said Rodgers has not answered his apartment door, has turned off his cellphone and may be living in motels.
