"The parents included on the Most Wanted list are non-custodial parents who repeatedly evade our efforts to collect the child support owed to their children," said DCFS Secretary Suzy Sonnier. "In previous years, this poster's publication has elicited tips about the current locations of many of Louisiana's delinquent payers and has in turn made them pay up."

Officials said if you know the whereabouts of any of the people on the list, you should call 1-888-524-3578 and choose Child Support (option 1) and then option 5.
