The Chatham County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to help deputies find Antonio Basilico Vico, 37, who they have charged with 22 counts of raping an 11-year-old girl.

In a statement issued Tuesday, officials said they believe Vico is in the Triangle. They said they know he frequents Siler City and Winston-Salem.

The incidents with the girl happened over the course of two years, the statement said.

Deputies charged Vico with three offenses for each instance: child rape, sexual assault and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Vico was described as being about 5-foot-4, weighing 180 pounds and having brown hair and eyes.

Authorities asked anyone who has information that might help them locate Vico to call the sheriff’s office at 919-542-2811.
