A sexual abuse victims' advocacy group is searching for information that may lead authorities to additional victims of a Buddhist monk who spent time in Anchorage before being convicted in Illinois of sexual assault.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests is looking for anything that would connect Camnong Boa-Ubol to othervictims, the group said Tuesday in a release..

Boa-Ubol lived in Anchorage in 2012 and worked as a dishwasher at LSG Sky Chef, according to the FBI.

An FBI agent, an air marshal and an Airport Police Department officer jailed Boa-Ubul in Anchorage on May 11 at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport on an Illinois warrant, according to news accounts.

Boa-Ubol pleaded guilty to aggravated assault against a Chicago girl starting in 1998, when she was 14 years old. He was sentenced in September to 15 years in prison, according to the Chicago Tribune.

SNAP asks anyone with information to contact its Chicago office at 312-455-1499.

The Anchorage Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line is (907) 561-7867.
