BATON ROUGE, LA (KPLC) -

A Westlake man is among the 18 "Most Wanted" people across the state who owe child support.

According to the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, 56-year-old Ricky Dale Richard, whose last known address was in Westlake, owes $78,724 in back child support.

In total, the individuals on the list owe $866,000, state officials say. A "Most Wanted" poster will be distributed to government offices around the state. You can view the poster HERE.

"The parents included on the Most Wanted list are non-custodial parents who repeatedly evade our efforts to collect the child support owed to their children," said DCFS Secretary Suzy Sonnier. "In previous years, this poster's publication has elicited tips about the current locations of many of Louisiana's delinquent payors and has in turn made them pay up."

Any member of the public who has information on the whereabouts of any person on the list is asked to notify authorities or call 1-888-LAHELP-U (1-888-524-3578) and choose Child Support (option 1), and then option 5.
