COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Forty-four year old William Dowdell is no stranger to the local jail. He's been in and out of our facility for failure to register and he's now wanted again for the exact same thing. Muscogee County Sheriff Deputy Jeffrey Hackey says he has not registered.

Originally arrested for second degree rape, Dowdell's last known address is off of Steam Mill Road in Columbus. Standing at 5'9" tall and weighing 190 pounds, Dowdell is considered dangerous.

But not knowing where to find him has Muscogee County Sheriff officials reaching out to the general public for help.

"We need to know where they live; we need to know where they work," said Deputy Hackey. "We update their folders and fingerprints on their birthday each and every year. So when they don't come up here and do that, they've violated the conditions of their probation and they have to go back in and see the judge again and see how he wants to handle it."

So remember, William Dowdell is a man on the run, but you can help bring his days of dodging police to a screeching halt.

Police need any information you can offer them regarding the whereabouts of William Dowdell. Remember your identity will remain anonymous.

Just call (706) 653-4225 if you can help police locate Dowdell.
