FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a man who failed to update his sex offender registration.

42-year-old Tyrone D. Powell registered with FCSO to reside at Queens Manor apartment complex in Mayflower but no longer lives there, and has not updated his address. Registered sex offenders are required to follow regulations pursuant to §12-12-906.

This offender was convicted of fourth degree sexual assault on March 10, 2008. The offense involved the then 32-year-old offender engaging in ongoing sexual contact with a 14-15-year-old female friend of his child.

Around the same time, a different 15-year-old female friend of his child said the offender molested her when she was at his home. A female relative of the offender said he engaged in sexual contact with her when she was between 9 and 13.

Citizens are encouraged to contact FCSO if you know the whereabouts of Tyrone Powell. Anonymous tips can be left at www.fcso.ar.gov, or you may call registered sex offender coordinator Phillips at 501-450-4917 or email her at vanda.phillips@fcso.ar.gov.
