Massachusetts State Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man who has been wanted on a child pornography charge since 2015.

Stephen C. Cote, 47, has been wanted on a federal charge for receipt of material involving the sexual exploitation of minors since November 2015 for allegedly possessing child pornography.

He has been on the run since an arrest warrant was issued for him, according to state police. He's previously been convicted of assault and battery in Massachusetts.

He has shaved his head in the past and has been known to have various forms of facial hair, police said. Cote is described as being 5'8", weighs approximately 190 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair. He also has tattoos on his right forearm and back.
