The Ohio Attorney General’s office is calling on the public to help find a convicted Ironton area sex offender who stopped registering his address less than a year after he was released from prison. According to records from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, Paul Price Jr. was convicted in March 2008 for the rape of a juvenile female and was released from prison in April 2011. Authorities said he last registered his address in October, but hasn’t been seen since.
Lawrence County deputies issued a warrant for his arrest in February of this year for failure to register. He had last registered himself as living on Ohio 141 in Ironton. Price, 36, is 5-feet, 11-inches tall, weighs 185 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes, and has several identifying tattoos on his right arm, including a flaming note, roses, an eight-ball and a small skull on his right hand.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Paul Price Jr. is asked to contact the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation at 855-BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446).
