LAS VEGAS (AP) -

With an accused unlicensed doctor in custody, authorities in Las Vegas are seeking people who had contact with him for services ranging from women's health and abortions to hormone and vitamin injections.

The Southern Nevada Health District, Las Vegas police and FBI called Wednesday for information about people who may have received unlicensed dental or medical services at an eastside Las Vegas residence associated with Rick Van Thiel or "Dr. Rick."

Investigators summoned a bomb squad and evacuated neighbors during a Sept. 30 warrant search of the house at 4928 East Monroe Ave.

The public notice says patients were recruited through websites including "itsonlynatural.me" and "49days.me" or responded to Craigslist ads under the term "49days."

Records show Van Thiel is jailed pending an Oct. 20 court appearance on multiple felony charges.
