HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Investigators are searching for a North Alabama man who is charged with receiving child pornography.

Federal investigators are looking for 28-year-old Matthew Harbin of Arab.

In 2009, he pleaded guilty to charges of transmitting obscene material to a minor.

Special agents say Harbin may be hiding somewhere in northern or southern Alabama, or in Florida. They also believe he may pose a threat to others and may try to flee the country to avoid capture.

Harbin is 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighs 200 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information should call 1-866-DHS-2ICE.
