At first glance, a Facebook post on the Gwinnett County sheriff’s official page seems normal.

“Our deputies are looking for 40 year old Michael Glenn Hovis, who's wanted by Duluth PD for probation violation,” the sheriff’s office said in the post.

Around the third sentence, things take a turn.

“We're certain that his children will appreciate any information you can provide to help us find him since they want to eat and keep a roof over their heads,” officials said.

According to the sheriff’s office, Hovis owes more than $30,000 in child support, too.

After asking those with information about Hovis’ whereabouts to call the sheriff’s office, authorities address him directly.

“Mr. Hovis,” the sheriff’s office said, “if you see this post, you should consider turning yourself in. It's never too late to start doing the right thing.”
