Patrick Edgell, 32, is wanted for soliciting a minor under 14-years-old for naked pictures and then allegedly picking her up for a rendezvous, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's office.

Authorities became aware of the inappropriate relationship in February after the minor's mother informed police her daughter had been receiving inappropriate text messages from Edgell.

Edgell used to live in the same apartment complex as the girl and somehow found the victim on a social network called KIK.

Authorities say the child and Edgell exchanged messages, including a picture of Edgell's genitals.

After that exchange, Edgell picked the child up and went to Brackenridge park where they allegedly smoked pot and kissed, authorities said.

The girl said Edgell offered her $1,000 dollars for naked photos.

Edgell was indicted for online solicitation of a minor to meet with the intent to commit sexual activity.

Edgell is 5'9" and weighs approximately 180 pounds.

Authorities believe he may be hiding out in San Antonio, Baytown or the Houston area.

Those with any information are asked to call the Bexar County sheriff's office at 210-335-6000.
