COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A wanted sex offender is on the loose and Muscogee County Sheriff officials need your help capturing him.

Muscogee County Sheriff officials want 25-year-old Mariel Watson off the streets.

Originally charged with aggravated assault with the intent to rape, police say Watson is someone they want back behind bars.

"His original charges are sex offender charges," said Deputy Jeffrey Hackey with the Muscogee County Sheriff's Department. "Right not he has a warrant out because he has failed to register with us in some way, shape, form or fashion."

Watson stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. His last known address was 4265 Macon Road in Columbus, but police have not been able to locate him at that location.

According to Deputy Hackey, police will leave no stone unturned until they find and arrest Mariel Watson.

"They require us to go out and check the people and make sure the addresses they file with us is correct, we call them on their phones, we go and check their employment, they have to let us know who their employers are," Deputy Hackey said. "We check that once or twice a year. If we go out and make contact with this person, a lot of them have the tendency to look like they actually live someplace which they are not supposed to, which they can't do."

So look closely at this photo of Watson and help police rid the streets of him.

If you know anything concerning the whereabouts of Mariel Watson, you are asked to call the Muscogee County Sheriff's Department at (706) 653-4225.
