Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is alerting the public about a sex offender who has failed to register his address with authorities as required by law.

Deputies with the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant for the arrest of William Guthrie on Sept. 3, 2013.  He is wanted on a charge of failure to provide a change of address.

According to public records, Guthrie, a sexually oriented offender, was convicted on two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in 2006.

Guthrie last registered his address in August 2012 as being on Club Lane in New Philadelphia.  He also has multiple tattoos including barbed wire on his face and forehead, a tear drop on his face, a four leaf clover and a spade with dice on his neck, flames on his right leg, a tribal tattoo, face, and tiger on his left arm, and a skull and spider on his right arm.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of William Guthrie should contact the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office or the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) at 855-BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446).

This alert is part of Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Crimes Against Children Initiative. As part of the Crimes Against Children Initiative, DeWine will publicize convicted sex offenders who have victimized children and are wanted on outstanding warrants.

If only he had some sort of recognizable feature...

He should be easy to find with the tat's on his fat face .....


Talk about a moustache ride cuting your inner thigh.


I have to tell.... My 86 y.o mother lives in the Dover/New Philadelphia area. I happened to be in her area at the time of the previous incident... Try explaining to an 86 year old woman that she doesn't fall in the demographic.


86 is prime why would you try to make your mother feel unattractive?


I'm sorry, I didn't intend to imply that. My mother is indeed a beautiful woman. That said, her local paper indicated the man targeted young boys, of which my mother is neither. She had difficulty understanding that.


Sorry, hit save x 2...
