SLO deputies searching human trafficking suspect from Madera

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Deputies in San Luis Obispo County are searching for a Madera man wanted in connection to a human trafficking investigation.

Investigators are looking for 26-year-old Joshua Murphy after they say they connected him to a 15-year-old victim.

Officials said evidence suggests Murphy was working with 28-year-old Heather Hunt from Tipton and 27-year-old Tremaine Jones from Bakersfield to traffic the 15-year-old and distribute child pornography.

Hunt and Jones have since been arrested, but Murphy remains on the loose.
