Patrick M. Conway – Ferndale police seeking info on suspected child molester

Ferndale Police are searching for anyone who may have been sexually molested by a man who ran a local day care business for more than a decade.

Patrick M. Conway, 74, was arrested Dec. 6 after two girls under the age of 15 told police that he had molested them several years before, according to a Ferndale Police press release.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Conway and his wife ran a daycare business out of their home on the 2000 block of Washington Street in Ferndale.

Lt. Matt Huffman said they are currently searching through Child Protection Services records to determine how long the day care was open, but they believe the daycare was open from 1989 until about 2004. It is unclear if the daycare had a name, he said.

Police also believe that Conway may have been a pastor or minister in the Van Zandt area.

Conway, who now lives in the Granite Falls area, was released on $100,000 bail Dec. 10. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Whatcom County Superior Court on Friday.
