Belgon is wanted on warrants for child molestation and statutory rape. His last known address was 122 Denali Drive in Calhoun.

She identified the men as Carl Belgon and Anthony Deparrish Quinn, 24, of 3258 Rauschenberg Road.

Anyone with information regarding Belgon’s location is asked to contact Detective Scott Murray at 706 278-9085, ext. 148.
