A Florida man wanted in the alleged sexual assault of a Florida minor was spotted in the lake area last week, but apparently has left the area, according to Lake Ozark Police Chief Mark Maples.
James Stovall, 35, was observed last week in the area of Country Club Hotel and Spa on Horseshoe Bend Parkway, and is believed to have family living in the lake area. He also uses the name of Matthew Stovall or Jayce Weaver.
Maples said he learned Monday that Stovall apparently left the area when he learned that local law enforcement agencies were looking for him.
Police said Stovall recently fled law enforcement in Broward County, Florida.
