BATH CO, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police say one of their most wanted is now in custody.

Police say US marshals and sheriff's deputies arrested John Wells, 56, in Loganville, Ohio.

In 2006, the Bath County grand jury indicted Wells for sexually abusing someone under the age of 12.

But they say Wells then left the state and went on the run.

Wells has been charged with two counts of sexual abuse.

He's now waiting to be brought back to Kentucky.
