Day Six Of “Catch 22” Features The Search For A Man Who Violated His Probation After Serving Time For Child Abuse In Cottonwood

Today is Day Six of Yavapai Silent Witness’ “Catch 22” program. Law enforcement officials are looking for 29-year-old Brice Adam Carl. In the early afternoon hours of September 30th, 2019, Carl was watching two young children at a home in the 17-hundred block of East Elm in Cottonwood. One of children, a three-year-old boy, said something that Carl believed was inappropriate. Carl then struck the child in the face several times and then picked him up, only to drop him on the floor landing head first. The child had swelling and discoloration under his eyes, on his cheeks and jaw line. There were finger marks along the sides of his face. His face and lips were swollen, and his bottom lip was split open. There was also a lump and a mark on the back of his head from being dropped. The child was transported to the hospital for treatment. Carl fled the scene, but was later located by a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Deputy and taken into custody. He was later convicted of child abuse and sentenced to jail. When he was released, Carl was placed on probation, which he has since violated. He is a white male, standing five-feet-six inches tall and weighing around 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has two tattoos, one on his left forearm and one on the back of his neck. Carl’s last known residence was in Cornville. Yavapai Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest. If anyone has any information on his whereabouts, call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232, or submit a tip online at
