    There is a picture of him here - I'm not sure how to post it.

    Police said Knab, who was listed as "endangered," was last seen at his home about 9 a.m. Friday wearing black jeans, boots and possibly a blue shirt.

    Still unable to see his picture, even when the link is pasted into Google.

    I am close enough he could be hiding in my town. I am guessing he ran or committed suicide to avoid jail time.

    If someone can get a picture up, I'll keep an eye out.

    I am guessing the listing is due to a health issue or at risk from the wrath of the families of the children he molested.

    This guy is wanted for the sexual molestation of two little girls when they were very young. It took 20 years to bring him down and now he is on the run. I knew when I was told that he ran that he had a gun and it is NOT to hurt himself because he is a narcissist. By giving him two months to get his personal affairs in order, he was able to plan his escape because he knew what he would be getting in jail...quite fitting for a man who gets his thrills out of touching little girls. The man is an avid hunter....or at least he was so he probably had all he needed in the woods ready to pick up when he took off. This is crazy!!! I hope that he would not be dumb enough to come after me an my family...my daughter was his victim...oh and did I mention he was also a woman beater....but you never can tell with someone like him! Please be vigilant!!

    Update.

    PM I received from the Blair County Sheriff's Department:

    "Mr Knab was tracked from his home by bloodhounds for a short distance (maybe a half mile) and the scent went cold. It is believed that he was picked up at that point by someone in a vehicle. Thank you for offering your assistance."

    Very nice of them to respond back with so much information and to save me the time of a trip out for nothing.

    I wish I got this type of polite and informative responses on all my offers to LE.

    To follow up on this old case, this 12/24/14 article (only one article found) reported his body was found, but I can find nothing from LE:

    A body found in a wooded area off 58th Street by a Logan Township resident has been identified as the man who fled in October instead of reporting to Blair County Prison to begin his jail sentence.

    Tena Sharp, fiancee of John Scott Knab, said Logan Township police and the Blair coroner contacted her Monday evening with the possibility that the body may be Knab.

    Dental records obtained Tuesday afternoon confirmed it was him.

    The gun wound to Knab's head has been ruled as self-inflicted.
