Child support posters help find parents

        HAMILTON - Butler County has issued its 12th “wanted” poster of parents who authorities say are not paying court-ordered child support and have been eluding authorities.

        The child support owed by each of the eight men on this wanted poster ranges from $4,163 to $34,402.

        Since the Butler County Child Support Enforcement Agency started issuing these wanted posters seven years ago, 53 of the 71 child-support offenders featured on the posters have been located.

        As a result, the agency has collected a total of $568,000 in child support from them.

        “We think the posters have been very effective,” said Daniel Cade, the agency's executive director. “By getting this information out there, we're not only showing the public we're serious about enforcing child support, but also asking for the public's help in locating these people.”

        These are the delinquent parents on the latest wanted poster: Scott Wilson, who owes $34,402 for two children; Jeffery Quarles, $30,699 for one child; Brian Marino, $22,801 for one child; Daniel King, $13,863 for one child; Antonio Castillo, $13,803; Wesley Smith, $9,014 for one child; Charles Myers Jr., $8,608 for one child; and Scott O'Malley, $4,163 for one child.

        The agency welcomes anonymous tips at 887-3362. Those with information about these men also can e-mail the agency at CSEA@butlercountyohio.org.

        The agency will be distributing its latest poster to about 300 locations, including post offices, businesses, banks and child support agencies.

        Butler County also displays the wanted poster on its newly upgraded Web site at www.butlercountyohio.org/csea, which made its debut Monday.
