Blount Co. Man A No Show In Court

Blount County (WVLT) - Authorities are searching a Blount County man charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 43-year-old August Edward Callis after he did not show up for court this morning for his arraignment.

In 2005, Callis was arrested after investigators say they found about 100,000 pornographic images of children on his computer.

Callis will be held without bond once he is apprehended.
