Photographer Facing Child Porn Charges Is Missing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say they’re trying to find a 52-year-old Las Vegas photographer who skipped out on a court hearing where he would have faced child pornography charges.

Authorities say they’ve issued a warrant for William Thompson, who didn’t show up for a Sept. 11 court date in Las Vegas.

Thompson operated Storybook Studios on West Craig Road. He’s accused of taking photos and recording videos of a juvenile in sexually explicit situations.

Authorities say they were tipped off to the case last November, and were told the juvenile had been used as a model for several months.

Detectives say they’ve linked Thompson to other cases, including others outside the continental United States, and he could face federal charges.
