LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Alleged victims and parents share their experience as law enforcement in Southern Indiana continues to search for 39-year-old Christopher Broy.
Wednesday the Scott County Sheriff's Office enlisted the public's help to find Broy, who is wanted for multiple counts of child molestation and solicitation. The sheriff went to the Scott County school district to warn administrators, students and parents to be careful with all their social media accounts. Some girls at Scottsburg High School told the principal they had already been contacted by Broy.

Indiana State Police and the U.S. Marshals Service is also searching for Broy. His name strikes a nerve with some Southern Indiana families who tell WAVE 3 News, they've had run-ins with Broy.
Vanessa Christopher, who's now 19, says she's not surprised that Broy -- who had social media accounts under many names including CJaintgivingup -- is wanted on charges of child solicitation, child molestation, possession of child porn and intimidation.
She said in one of her first encounters with Broy on social media that he asked: "What kind of freaky stuff are you into? What have you done?"
Christopher says she was 16 at the time.
"I know a lot of people that he's pursued when they were like 14 or 15 years old," she said.
Christopher tells us once she posted she was going to a nail appointment with a friend on her Facebook page and Broy offered to pay, on one condition.
"He hit up my inbox and was like, 'Well, if I can get some pictures, I'll pay for you girls,' and I was like, 'No,'" she recalled.
Christopher says Broy wanted nude photos. She later blocked him.
Parent Tammy Palmer tells us, she had it out with Broy on Facebook Messenger after he contacted her young daughter. In this post she told Broy: "You are way too old to message young girls, my daughter told you she's not interested and she is a minor..."
Broy used profanity and responded: "I didn't message your daughter, (but) if u tell me her name I might."
"We will let the police sort it out," Palmer wrote back.
"Sounds good hope u die in ur sleep...," Broy responded.
A social media post mad Wednesday night by a "Chris Broy" stated it would be his last post because he was throwing his phone in the river. He also said that there is no evidence against him and he would appreciate it if the police would stop harassing his family.
