LaPorte County, Ind. A wanted sex offender out of LaPorte County may have moved to Mishawaka.
Police are looking for Stephen Rootes, 31, after he reportedly failed to register as a sex offender, which is a class C felony.
When police went for a routine check at his LaPorte County home in October, they determined he had moved from that location and didn't notify police, which is required by Indiana code.
Officials believe he may have relocated to Mishawaka.
Rootes was convicted in 2007 for sexual misconduct with a minor.
Anyone with information about Rootes whereabouts is asked to call the LaPorte County Sheriff's Office.
