DELTONA -- A former missionary from Deltona is facing federal child porn charges after multiple law enforcement agencies found thousands of images of child pornography on his home computer.

Joel Price, 36, was indicted earlier this month on child porn charges following an 8-month investigation that began in his home on Balsam Street in May.

Price had been a member of the New Tribes Mission for five years and had served as a member in Venezuela as a maintenance man. He resigned from the mission in June.

Authorities said Price admitted to investigators that he was obsessed with child porn.
