An accused paedophile from Western Australia will remain in custody in NSW after he was found by police in the state's Hunter region.

Alfred John Impicciatore, a member of the so-called "Evil 8", failed to show up to a Perth court on Monday.

He is accused of sexually abusing a girl who was aged between 11 and 13 when she was pimped out by her father, and has pleaded not guilty to offences including sexually penetrating a child in 2015.

The 47-year-old was found by NSW police at Merriwa on Friday afternoon.

The matter appeared at Newcastle Local Court on Saturday, where Impicciatore did not apply for bail and bail was formally refused.

He will remain in custody until Monday when his case matter will reappear in Newcastle Local Court.

WA police said earlier in the week he might have been driving a stolen car with 40-year-old Rachel Galvin, who is not facing any charges.

The 47-year-old was due to stand trial this week after being released on bail last December.

He had spent nearly three months in prison following his arrest on September 9, when he did not show up to court and instead went to a hospital claiming to need treatment for stress and anxiety.

He has repeatedly not shown up or been late for court appearances.

Those jailed so far in the case include the victim's father, who is appealing his 22-year sentence.

Former pastor Dawid Volmer was sentenced to 10-and-a-half years behind bars; photographer Benjamin Simon Clarke was imprisoned for three years; Nicholas Adam Beer received seven years; Troy Phillip Milbourne was sentenced to five years and three months; and Ryan Trevor Clegg received a sentence of 12 years.
