TULSA, Okla. —

Quick Facts:

  • Police are searching for Melodie Conn as part of a child neglect investigation.
  • She was first arrested in March for harboring a fugitive in a Tulsa home.
  • The condition of the home and presence of a 6-year-old prompted the neglect investigation.

Tulsa police said a chase involving a wanted suspect last month opened a bigger investigation involving allegations of possible child abuse and neglect.

Suspect Tyler Wilson is already in the Tulsa County Jail but police say they need help finding Melodie Conn.

FOX23 first reported the story in late March when the police gang unit, after a short chase, found Wilson hiding in the attic of the couple’s home near Pine and Peoria.

Police said the condition of the house and the presence of Conn’s 6-year-old daughter there prompted the abuse and neglect investigation. The child was placed in the care of a family member by The Department of Human Services.

Conn bonded out of jail after the March arrest. Police are searching for her.
