Central Coast authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a man they say is a serial predator targeting children.

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s detectives say they received a report in February of a child being molested. While investigating, they say they found more victims who reported being molested by the same man over a several year long period.

The investigators identified David Paul Wilson of San Luis Obispo as the man responsible for the attacks. They say he’s lived in both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, and think cujrrently in hiding.

Detectives have an arrest warrant for the 38-year-old man. They believe he found some of his victims through relationships with single mothers.
