Police are searching for a man they believe drove to Spokane from Mississippi to have a relationship with a 15-year-old girl he met online.

Kevin W. Kiowski, 24, is wanted on a warrant for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. Kiowski, who also uses the last name Jankiowski, allegedly exchanged “sexual images” with the girl, according to police. He reportedly sold his car and came to Spokane to “further the relationship” with the girl, police said.

Anyone with information on Kiowski’s location is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 or Det. Woodyard at (509) 363-8219.
