PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - A Sedgewickville man accused of abusing his 6-year-old stepson has turned himself in and bonded out of jail.
On Friday, Perry County sheriff's investigators announced they were looking for Paul McGee.  Investigators said McGee, 23, disappeared last Thursday after picking up his stepson by the neck and hitting him on the back with a belt.
According to investigators, McGee was mad because the boy had lost his coat.
McGee is also one of three people recently taken into custody on charges of several midemeanor drug offenses, deputies said.
