Pierce County Sheriff's deputies are searching for convicted sex offender Chris Ramsey. Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that helps locate him. Ramsey was released from jail for a furlough to attend a funeral for a family member but did not return.
"There was a judge who looked at it and approved it and wrote the order that he could get out on furlough to go attend a funeral. We let people out for funerals and major family events and especially if they’re not going to be serving a lot of time, because there’s no reason for them not to come back. He took advantage of us and didn’t come back. Now, he’s facing warrants for unregistered sex offender misdemeanors. We’re sure his family members and friends probably know he’s out running around somewhere so the first person to tell us where he is hiding gets the cash reward," said. Det. Ed Troyer.
Ramsey was convicted in 2009 of Communication with a minor for immoral purposes. It is a Gross Misdemeanor. He was serving time for failing to register as a sex offender last August.
Ramsey is 5'10", 175 lbs with black hair and brown eyes. If you know where he is, call the hot line anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS.
Ramsey is one of several wanted sex offenders we will be featuring on Washington’s Most Wanted Friday night at 11pm on Q13 FOX and Saturday night at 10pm on JoeTV.
