ORLANDO -- State law enforcers are asking the public's help in coming forward with any information on a 46-year-old Orlando man who may have solicited for sex of children or involvement of human trafficking beyond two alledged victims -- a father and son, following the suspect's arrest.
Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Miami Regional Operations Center Cyber/High-Tech Crimes squad arrested Donald W. Purviance, 46, of Orlando, on charges of solicitation of a parent, human trafficking, soliciting the procurement of a minor for prostitution and attempted lewd and lascivious battery.
The investigation began last year, following an anonymous tip, when Purviance lived in Biscayne Park, FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said. She said Purviance moved to Orlando (20156 Quinlan St.) last September, and in February, allegedly solicited an undercover agent he thought was the parent of a 14-year-old son.
"Purviance offered to pay $750 in exchange for sex with the father and the son," Plessinger said. "FDLE agents arrested Purviance in Sumter County on Monday without incident. Agents believe there could be additional victims."
