WEST SENECA, NY (WKBW) -- Ron Tebo is looking for justice.

"What he did to me and my sister is unforgivable," said Tebo, who is talking about a deep secret he held for more than 40 years.

When Tebo was 7-years-old, he was molested by a teenage neighbor nicknamed "Butch."

On one occasion, Tebo said "Butch" molested Tebo's younger sister, forcing him to watch.

"I mean here you are 7-years-old -- you have a man -- I'm going to say man who is 15-years-old -- who at that moment is exploiting my sister," he said. "What can I do? What can I do? I couldn't do a damn thing. And I feel horrible about it."

But Tebo needed to do something to expose his alleged abuser. Criminal charges were out of the question since the statute of limitations on the case expired years ago.

So Tebo decided to find "Butch," documenting his search on video and posting his journey on Facebook and YouTube.

"Hunting him down," Tebo said. "I wanted to get a confession. I wanted to confront the man that stole my sister's innocence and molested me."

"I wanted him to know that I was still there. I wanted him to walk the street knowing that I was there. I wanted him to remember what he did to me," he said.

After three longs years of searching, Tebo found "Butch."
