Police are hopeful more victims of accused child sex abusers Sean and David Vickers will come forward.
44-year-old Sean Vickers is facing state charges for allegedly abusing children from Batavia and Genesee County.
Batavia Police Detective Kevin Czora would not say how many local children may have been victimized.
He did say there were multiple cases of abuse some dating back years, others, a matter of months.
Czora said no matter how long ago the crimes may have occurred, it is important for victims to come forward:
"So that they can obtain the justice that they deserve from being victimized, as well as for their own counseling and ability to try and recover from what happened to them." Services are available, Czora said, whether they were victimized years ago or months ago.
49-year-old David Vickers of Ontario County is facing a federal Grand Jury indictment charging him with sexually abusing children while working as a truck driver.
Authorities say Vickers befriended the boys then took then along on trips to New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Canada.
