PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Prosecutors in Panama City are seeking to revoke the bond of a Georgia teen believed to have faked his death and traveled to Denver.

Court records show a fisherman found a pile of clothes and a suicide note along a riverbank in Brooks County, Ga., which is on the Florida-Georgia line on April 22. Investigators began searching for 19-year-old Nathan Wilkins, who had been arrested in June during a child sex sting operation in Panama City.

Wilkins turned up in Aurora, Colo., on April 25.

Authorities say Wilkins was due in court in Florida on Monday on charges stemming from Operation Riptide. He was charged with traveling to meeting a minor for sex, computer pornography and child exploitation.
