FAIRBANKS - A Delta Junction area man accused of sexual abuse has run away from his court-appointed custodian while awaiting trial, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Daniel Duane Jensen Jr., 54, was indicted in 2013 for the alleged abuse of a 12-year-old girl more than 10 years ago.
Jensen was scheduled to go to trial next month and was under a court order to remain with a third-party custodian. On Thursday troopers received a report that he had run away from his custodian, according to a news release sent Monday afternoon.
Troopers are asking anyone with information about Jensen's location to call 911 or the Delta Junction trooper post at 895-4800.
Both Jensen and his wife, Diana Jensen, were indicted on sex abuse charges in October 2013. Charges against them allege the couple lured the girl to their home with an invitation to try on a prom dress. Daniel Jensen allegedly sexually abused the girl at their home outside Delta Junction and on trips to Delta Junction and Anchorage.
Diana Jensen was also charged with sexual abuse of a minor. In January she pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit sexual abuse of a minor, according to court records.
