NEWKIRK — A warrant is issued for a Wichita, Kan. resident charged with a felony count of child sexual abuse in Kay County.

Michael Eugene Snavely, 59, is accused of sexually abusing a child, who is now a teen, in both Oklahoma and Kansas for at least the last six years.

Kay County deputy Mike Landis reports in the affidavit that on Aug. 28, 2019, he received a report on the abuse from Wichita Police Det. LaTavia Klumpp.

The report indicates that one alleged incident occurred at Kaw Lake during the summer months of 2018. The teen told investigators that she believes she would have been raped if her parents hadn’t showed up when they did.

Bond for Snavely is endorsed at $50,000.
