The Attorney General's office says former Tower Hill headmaster Chris Wheeler faces more than two dozen counts of dealing in child pornography.

The charges come just one week after Wheeler stepped down as headmaster after police searched his Wilmington office and residence last week. Tower Hill alerted students' families via e-mail about the investigation.

In their search, the attorney general's office says they seized computers and other digital media containing multiple images of child pornography.

A warrant for Wheeler's arrest have been issued but his whereabouts are currently unknown.

Police ask that anyone with more information immediately contact Wilmington Police Detective Cecilia Ashe at (302) 576-3649.
