Brooksville police hunt man who skipped sexual battery hearing

BROOKSVILLE — Guy Osman Gould Jr. was supposed to face a judge Friday on charges of sexual battery to a child.

Gould, 66, never showed. Now authorities are asking for help to find him.

Brooksville police officers on Friday went looking for Gould at his home on Daffodil Drive, according to a media release from the Brooksville Police Department.

Neighbors told police they last saw Gould on Aug. 27 leaving the house with a small bag, getting into the passenger side of an older-model, blue car driven by a white male named Chris, the release said. The car had damage to a rear quarter panel. Authorities suspect Gould may have sold all of his belongings and left the country from Miami.

Gould is accused of engaging in sexual activities with a 15- and a 14-year-old boy. According to a police news release issued in January, the 15-year-old told his mother that he had sexual contact with Gould. The mother then went to police. During an interview with police, Gould confessed to having sex with the 15-year-old and a 14-year-old boy, police said.

The 14-year-old later told police he had sexual contact with Gould on four occasions. The five incidents took place from August through January, police said.

Anyone with information about Gould is asked to call the Hernando County Sheriff's Office warrants division at (352)754-6830.
