The father, Terry Dusseault Sr. (above right) is described as 38 years old, 5′ 10″ tall, about 210 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Officials say he is a registered sex offender and was charged this morning with additional counts of sex assaults on three other children — not his son.

He has a tattoo on his left arm of “NY” and a tattoo on his upper chest with the word “Schaney.” He was last seen wearing a tan, short-sleeve shirt and khaki shorts.  The child was last seen wearing a maroon-and-white striped shirt and blue jeans.
