CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A prosecutor says a man arrested on child rape charges last month in Tennessee could have victims in nine other states.

Hamilton County District Attorney Neal Pinkston said 30-year-old Ryan Andrew Meyung was charged in December with child rape, aggravated kidnapping, and other related counts.

He said an investigation led to local law enforcement partnering with Homeland Security Investigations and all agencies believe there may be more victims in Tennessee as well as Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.

Pinkston urged anyone with information about Meyung to contact Homeland Security Investigations.
