Joseph Kony, leader of the Ugandan guerilla group, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), is reportedly hiding in the Central Africa Republic, according to United Nations' envoy for Central Africa, Abou Moussa.
We do have information that he may be in the Central African Republic, said Moussa via videoconference from Entebbe, Uganda.
Moussa also believes that the size of Kony's forces has decreased to somewhere between 200 and 700 followers.
Kony, who has become an internet sensation through the viral KONY 2012 video, has notoriously led a campaign of child abduction, including turning little girls into sex slaves and boys into child soldiers.
According to the African Union, the LRA should be held accountable for 2,600 civilian deaths in the last four years.
Since 1986, an estimated 66,000 children are believed to have served as soldiers in the LRA, according to the U.S. government.
Kony has been wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) since 2005 and is being hunted across Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, and South Sudan.
The search for Kony has primarily occurred thanks to Ugandan forces, although US President Barack Obama did send 100 American soldiers to help out.
The KONY 2012 video campaign created by the Invisible Children organization has given the hunt for the international criminal renewed vigor.
In fact, the African Union announced on Friday that it would send 5,000 soldiers in a renewed mission to hunt Kony.
This mission will start on Saturday from South Sudan and continue on until Kony is found.
