HALLOWELL, Maine — Authorities looking for Maine’s former top drug prosecutor who disappeared following a federal appeals court decision upholding his conviction on child pornography charges have searched the home of the man’s ex-wife.

The Kennebec Journal reported that police searched the Hallowell home of Barbara Cameron on Tuesday in their nationwide manhunt for her ex-husband, James Cameron.

The 50-year-old James Cameron of Rome cut off his court-ordered electronic monitoring ankle bracelet and disappeared around midnight on Nov. 14, the same day the court upheld convictions on seven counts of sending, receiving and possessing child pornography while vacating convictions on six counts.

After the ruling, Cameron went to his ex-wife’s home and told his son that he was going back to jail, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Bangor.
