The Logan County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to help locate a registered sex offender who is not living at his registered address.

Josh Walton, 23, was released from jail September 30 after a court-ordered sanction. He did not return to his registered address. Walton spoke with law enforcement several times and said he was trying to establish a new address, but deputies say that never happened. Since then, deputies have not been able to locate him.

Deputies have issued arrest warrants for Walton for failing to register as a sex offender, and violating the Sex and Violent Offender Registration Act. It's believed Walton is somewhere in the metro area, possibly Edmond or south Oklahoma City.

Walton is a white male, 6 feet 6 inches tall, 207 pounds with brown hair, hazel eyes and multiple tattoos. Deputies say if you see Walton, do not contact or engage him.

If you know Walton's whereabouts, you're asked to call Logan County Sheriff's Office at (405) 282-4100.
