WARSAW, Poland—Polish police say they have located a priest sought by Interpol on suspicion he sexually abused children in the Dominican Republic.

Katrzyna Cislo, a police spokeswoman, said Wednesday that the Rev. Wojciech Gil was found in a location near the southern city of Krakow. He was not detained because Interpol only asked to locate him. Gil was instructed to notify police of any change of location. Cislo said that to arrest him, the police would need a request from Dominican investigators.

Gil was in Poland on vacation when the allegations surfaced in late May and has not returned to the Dominican Republic, where he led a parish in the mountain town of Juncalito for eight years. He has denied wrongdoing in phone calls to Dominican reporters.
