Most Wanted--Stephen Hamilton

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It's a face that wouldn't be hard to spot in a crowd. Stephen Hamilton, 31, is being tracked down by Muscogee County Sheriff officials.

"His original charge was statutory rape. He has a warrant out for him for failure to register. He hasn't been in to see us like he's supposed to," says Muscogee County Sheriff Deputy, Jeffrey Hackey.

According to Deputy Hackey, Hamilton's last known address is off Beacon Avenue in Columbus, but now there's no trace of him in that area. Hamilton stands 5'10" tall and weighs 162 pounds. Police say he shouldn't be hard to spot with so many tattoos all over his neck and body.

"The more extreme the tattoos and different locations the easier it makes it for us to spot him," says Hackey.

Police urge you to call 9-1-1 if you spot him, and not try to apprehend him yourself.

"I think just anybody who has a warrant out on them should be considered dangerous. You never know when somebody is trying to flee from "John Q" law they will do just about anything to get away," says Hackey.

If you know the whereabouts of Stephen Hamilton you are asked to call the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office at (706) 653-4225.
