The Dover Police Department’s Sex Offender Enforcement Unit is looking for an area sex offender after he apparently left the address at which he was registered.
The man is identified as Claude Johnston, 23, a Tier II sex offender, said police spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
Johnston is described as a black man standing 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Johnston had listed his address at 128 Old Forge Drive, but police discovered the home has been vacant since December, Hoffman said.
According to the Delaware Sex Offender Central Registry, Johnston was convicted of rape and unlawful sexual contact in March 2004.
Anyone with information as to Johnson’s whereabouts is asked to call Dover Police at 736-7111 immediately.
